Past conservation efforts include those in 1987-1991 by The Reef Survey and Conservation Project, a project undertaken by the Republic of Singapore Yacht Club (RSYC), Singapore Institute of Biology (SIBiol) and Singapore Underwater Federation (SUF). Among the results was identifying and targeting four reef areas as good enough to merit some form of conservation: St John's group of islands, Pulau Hantu and patch reefs, Pulau Semakau and patch reefs, live firing islands including Raffles Lighthouse. More details on this and other conservation efforts on the Coral Reefs of Singapore website.

Grateful acknowledgement to Jeffrey Low for pointing out some omissions.
