Fishy at Pulau Tekukor with otters!

We did the last predawn survey for the year at Pulau Tekukor. This very rocky shore is just a few hundred metres from Sentosa and its western shore is part of the Sisters' Islands Marine Park.

The team saw seven otters having breakfast on the island, found two Giant clams and lots more! The corals and seagrasses here appear to be fine.

Three-clam day at Pulau Jong

Pulau Jong is among the last untouched islands in Singapore. It has not been reclaimed or directly impacted by development. Pulau Jong is what all our Southern islands looked like before they were reclaimed.
