More than a dumping ground: Pulau Semakau

Cheong Poh Kwan, Straits Times 26 Aug 09;

THE 10-year-old Semakau Landfill is a dumping ground for Singaporeans' trash, but it is also a haven of biodiversity.

The offshore island harbours more than 780 species of plants and animals.

In particular, the intertidal reef flat and seagrass meadow surrounding the western shore of Pulau Semakau is teeming with marine creatures.

At low tide, visitors can catch pairs of sea stars sharing some intimate moments on the mudflat.

Animals such as stingrays and oysters, which always end up in Singaporeans' favourite hawker fare, can also be seen in their natural habitats.

RazorTV brings you 8km south of mainland Singapore to Semakau Landfill.

Catch the clips to appreciate its rich biodiversity.
