Cyrene: poster child for balancing conservation and coastal development

Cyrene Reef is featured in a series of panels about the need to balance conservation and development!

Not once, but twice!
There's also a panel about the massive reclamation project at Pasir Panjang Container Terminals near the natural shores at Labrador, Sentosa and Cyrene Reef. It's good to know that there is realisation that this project will impact our marine life.

These panels were done by NParks' National Biodiversity Centre and highlight Singapore's work towards integrated coastal management. These posters showcased this work at the PEMSEA East Asian Seas Congress 2009 in Manila.

I came across these panels at the inspiring talk I attended yesterday, about integrated coastal management. More about the talk on the wild shores of singapore blog.
