Scuba Diver in Reef



Singapore's waters are home to

one-third of the world's hard corals,

one hundred reef fish species,

two hundred sponge species.

Green Coral and Fish

Over the years,

Singapore has lost approximately

60% of its reef to land reclamation, 

15% to a coral bleaching episode in 2016

Local reef conservation is relevant to climate change. Coral reefs help to

break wave energy,

stave off flooding,

reduce coastal erosion
