What marine life is at the East Coast?
Besides living walls, we've seen interesting stuff on the sandy shores.
As well as 'reefy' animals on rockier parts of the shores and on hard surfaces.
Baby sea turtles hatched on the East Coast last year, as well as in the past.
There were even new records of marine life for Singapore based on observations at the East Coast! These include surf clams, another kind of clam and snails that live on sea fans.
These works are probably part of on-going efforts at infrastructural improvements which include "converting bare spots on the coastline into sandy beach, the upgrading of Bedok Jetty and park amenities, and the relocating of boat storage areas.
As well as possibly efforts to deal with serious erosion that has been affecting the East Coast.
