Singapore’s Natural Heritage – Cyrene Reef (12 August 2008 )
Located west of Labrador Beach, between Pulau Bukom and Jurong Island, Cyrene Reef is situated in the middle of a busy shipping lane. The wonders of this reef are only reveal at low tides. Flaunting a long sand bar flanked by lush sea-grass meadows and lagoons of coral rubble, Cyrene Reef is rich in marine diversity despite its proximity to offshore refineries and other developments. This small exhibit showcases the beauty of Cyrene Reef and its inhabitants.
