Project NOAH no more

Category : marine

Thu 25 May 2006: 7pm - A dialogue session on the NOAH project was held at the Hilton Hotel, Level 3, Vista 2 & 3 "to engage all concerned groups and steer the project forward in a constructive manner."

This was in response to concerns and information raised at the last session (See Habitatnews, WildSingapore).

The initial misgivings appear to have been addressed. It is heartening to see that various parties were able to evaluate and respond to the information and concerns raised by the marine community.

Debby Ng reports - "UPDATE: Project NOAH sunk." By Debby Ng. Pulau Hantu - A celebration of marine life, 26 May 2006.

"25 May, 2006 - The Singapore Environment Council (SEC) together with the Nature Society of Singapore (NSS) hosted a seminar this evening to brief concerned parties about the new status of Project NOAH, which was launched in April this year."

"When questioned by the floor, it was asserted that "Project NOAH" is no longer in existence. It's initial plans detailed in the April press conference are presently "suspended". Dr. Geh Min said there is "no need to call it NOAH anymore. She also explained that the principle of Phase II was to implement a method to "cope with increasing sedimentation" on our reefs."
