Abstract

Coral reefs are one of the most critically threatened habitats. Climate change, pollution, and direct human impact are destroying coral reefs all over the world. Singapore is a small island nation that has destroyed almost all of its natural coral reefs in order to accommodate its growing population and economy. This project proposes a conservation project including an artificial coral reef off the coast of Pulau Semakau, a small island near the main island of Singapore. The mission of this project is to combine conservation, recreation, and education to increase awareness and understanding of coral reef ecosystems and the elements that are most threatening. Additionally, this park will help Singaporeans reach the goals they have set for their city in improving the city’s living environment and enhancing their natural environment.
