In the article, Mr Chan Mun Wei, Divisional Director of the Corporate Planning Division said: “We want to make sure we don’t over-develop the island. If we do so, then we destroy what Sentosa stands for.” The Sentosa Green Plan, launched in late-2009, focuses on maintaining greenery and conserving biodiversity, testbedding green technologies, resource efficiency and recycling.
There is little mention in the article, though, of Sentosa's marine life. Except side remarks that "The development of Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) raised concerns among nature enthusiasts ... most of its complex was built on reclaimed land" and "Surprisingly, the reclamation of a portion of the Serapong golf course to include part of the sea for water features led to a healthy cluster of Bakau pasir – a rare species of mangrove tree – taking root in one of the golf ponds."
Still, it was great to see that four photos of the amazing marine life we recently encountered at Serapong was featured! Here's a slide show of all the photos taken at Serapong.
More about our trips to Sentosa's amazing natural shores and to Serapong's amazing reefs.
