BIRTH OF A MARINE PARK

2100 on 13 August (2100 BKK/JKT, 2200 MNL)

Off the shores, away from the glittering skyline of the city, Singapore maintains one of the world’s busiest shipping lanes. Yet its waters hide a little-known secret: a rich bio-habitat harbouring diverse marine life, including a species long thought to be globally extinct. This documentary follows the visionary partnership of Singapore planners, scientists and nature-lovers who are coming together to create the island nation’s first-ever marine park in the waters around Sisters’ Island, one of Singapore’s remaining coral reefs.
