2015 - 2016 Rapid Biological Assessment of Palawan Lagoon
Palawan Beach in Sentosa Island, Singapore was planned for conversion to a lagoon with controlled water exchange. Based on the plan, the lagoon will be closed up, turned into a underwater coral garden and safer swimming area with controlled water quality for visitors.
An important element of the project was the assessment of existing marine life in the sandy shore, and how corals can be introduced, and thrive in the lagoon. Enviro Pro was tasked with the rapid biological assessment of Palawan Lagoon to determine the biological diversity of the lagoon.
The following were done:
- Line-Intercept Transect (LIT)
- Physical Environment and Ecological Baseline Analysis
- Direct and Indirect Impact Analysis
- Mitigation Measures
- Environmental Monitoring Plans
