about us

Sea Our Shores - Our Mangroovy Mangroves with Restore Ubin Mangroves (R.U.M.) Initiative
Mangrove Restoration Workshop on Pulau Ubin!
One of the activities by the marine community for IYOR 2018.

What is Celebrating Singapore Shores?

It is a community platform that brings together the Singapore marine community. This community-driven initiative brings together partners such as government agencies, NGOs, non-for- profit interest groups, academics, private organisations, and civil society. As we join in the celebrations of International Year of the Reef 2018 and hopefully, the years beyond.

This platform is to celebrate all our shores: from mangroves to seagrasses, rocky shores to reefs, even our living artificial shores!

All are welcome to join in!

Through articles on this blog and related channels, we hope to inspire everyone to CONNECT, RESPECT and PROTECT Singapore's shores!

What are some of the activities planned?

One key activity will be the Singapore Blue Plan 2018, drawn up by science and expert contributors, as well as stakeholders, for submission to government in the third quarter of 2018.

The community will also offer lots of events to celebrate our shores!

There will be fun activities for everyone to appreciate Singapore's shores.

As well as activities to start conversations about and take action for our shores.
