Mangroves all over Pulau Ubin were affected by the 300 tonnes of oil that spilled on 3 Jan (Tue) following a collision between two container ships at Pasir Gudang. The oil spill has impacted mangroves at Pulau Ketam, Sungei Puaka in the south, Chek Jawa in the east, and Sungei Mamam and other northern Ubin shore.
