The Marine Park gets global attention as Victor Tang's awesome film "Birth of a Marine Park" gets honourable mention at the BLUE Ocean Film Festival and Conservation Summit in Florida. And a recent update on the mass coral bleaching situation from the scientists.

Sisters' Islands Marine Park: walks resume in the midst of mass coral bleaching

In May, NParks unveiled more plans for conservation at the Marine Park. The pontoons are back at the Marine Park allowing volunteer guides to start intertidal guided walks in May and June! And stamps were also issued featuring the Sisters' Island legend.

Alas, Singapore's reefs were also hit by global mass coral bleaching. The Marine Park was not spared.

Intertidal walks resume, registration opens 1 May!

Intertidal guided walks are back at the Sisters Islands Marine Park! Registration on the NParks website opens 1 May.

Sisters Islands Marine Park land access was closed 16 Dec 2015 - 1 Apr 2016 as the floating pontoons at the jetties of both Sisters’ Islands were removed for inspection and maintenance. So land access was temporarily unavailable.
