The First Marine Park in Singapore

From TheSmartlocal.sg

When the National Parks Board (NParks) announced in July 2014 the designation of the Sisters’ Islands as Singapore’s 1st Marine Park, I had mixed feelings. I was delighted that nature-lovers have, for once, triumphed – nature was finally allowed to flourish in close proximity to us urbanized folk.

On the other hand, I was weary of the fact that most of our children would rather be glued to their smartphones or tablets than look up and breathe in the wonders nature have to offer. Regardless, it’s heartwarming to know nature is alive and well within our boundaries. I hope the designation of Sister Islands as a marine park will create more awareness of the nature around us.
