Saving mangroves at Pulau Tekong continues!

Efforts to save more than 1,000 mangrove trees on Pulau Tekong's north-eastern coastline continue! These trees are at risk from serious erosion due to boat traffic.

This never-before-attempted approach to coastal protection and restoration is being tried out by NParks to save possibly the last largest pristine stretch of mangroves in Singapore. It's good to hear that the efforts are on-going in a recent MPA Port Marine Notice. More about this effort.
