Marvellous March at the Marine Park

Volunteers of the Marine Park had a blast with outreach efforts at a mall. And on Sentosa island too, including screening of 'Birth of a Marine Park'. There was also a Workshop on reefs at the Marine Park public gallery. All to celebrate International Year of the Reef 2018. Meanwhile, public walks continued with exciting finds for everyone.

18 Mar (Sun): FREE screening of "Birth of a Marine Park"

Come this Sunday to watch the award-winning "Birth of a Marine Park" about Singapore's first marine park at the Sisters Islands by Victor Tang.
Off the shores, away from the glittering skyline of the city, Singapore maintains one of the world’s busiest shipping lanes, yet its waters hide a little-known secret : a rich bio-habitat harbouring diverse marine life, including even species long thought to be extinct. This documentary follows the visionary partnership of Singapore planners, scientists and nature-lovers who are coming together to create Singapore’s first-ever Marine Park in the waters around one of the nation’s remaining coral reefs: Sisters’ Island.
