Marine Life Diversity in Marina Bay

Since 2010, the reservoir in Marina Bay turned from saltwater to freshwater and a wide variety of freshwater fishes (common snakeheads, peacock bass, gobies, tilapias, catfishes etc.) macroinvertebrates (e.g. dragonflies) and phytoplankton (algae) thrive in it. 
Take a closer look and spot the diversity of life teeming in the water or if you are fortunate, a family of smooth-coated otters may just swim up to the boardwalk to surprise you. 

The presence of otters to the city is proof of the success of Singapore’s efforts to green itself. Although it is the world’s second-most densely populated country, the government has set aside approximately 8% of its 719 square kilometres (277 square miles) for parks and other green space. The city-state is becoming what the late Founding Prime Minister of Singapore, Mr Lee Kuan Yew, always thought it "otter" be.


Native Species in our Freshwater Environment

Decades of rapid development have extensively changed Singapore’s natural landscape. In our highly urbanised city today, reservoirs and reservoir parks are important habitats for a wide variety of freshwater flora and fauna. These organisms in turn influence their freshwater habitats, and the complex processes that occur within them. So, who are these inhabitants who share this island state with us?
