Beautiful Pulau Ubin slowly eroded by waves

 Beautiful Pulau Ubin slowly eroded by waves
Pulau Ubin might disappear over time as waves continue to erode its coast and the flora and fauna on it, says STOMPer Botanist, who saw signs of erosion on the road near Noordin Beach.

Over the years, even trees have been consumed by the hungry waves, says the sender.

Worried, STOMPer Botanist says in an email:

"These pictures were taken at Noordin Beach in Pulau Ubin.

"Many cyclists travel along this macadamised road from the jetty to the beach.

"However, the end of the road has been washed away by the waves which keep pounding on the road day and night.

"Even some of the trees have been washed away by the hungry waves.

"If nothing is done, the land area of Ubin will shrink over the years.

"With the disappearance of the soil and trees, the flora and fauna of this peaceful island will be adversely affected."
