Colourful terumbu karang (coral reefs) bloom amongst Singapore’s southern islands, and scattered along our coasts are a variety of other marine habitats: mangroves, sandy beaches, rocky shores, mudflats and seagrass beds. Many of our natural marine habitats have dwindled due to pollution, land reclamation and heavy vessel traffic. Nevertheless, they remain home to countless life forms, as fascinating as they are beautiful.

Illustrated using Microsoft PowerPoint by Loy. Poster design by Loy, MJ and Jeremy. This and other A2-size prints now available for request on www.wilddrawings.com. While stocks last.

Here are 40 species that live in the mangroves of Singapore, illustrated using Microsoft PowerPoint by Loy.

Mangrove forests are valuable ecosystems that are often underappreciated. They not only help protect our coastlines from erosion, but also provide food and shelter for creatures great and small. Many animals from the ocean (including some we commonly consume as seafood) use the calm and nutrient-rich waters of mangroves as nurseries to raise their young. Although Singapore's remaining mangroves are limited, they remain very biodiverse. Visit our mangroves at Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, Pasir Ris Park or Pulau Ubin!
