Singapore 2004 Chek Jawa

Chek Jawa (pictures here) is located at the eastern tip of Pulau Ubin. It is a collection of six distinct habitats - coastal forest, mangroves, sand bars, seagrass lagoon, rocky shore and coral rubble. Some of these habitats are found at Pulau Sekudu (or Frog Island) , which is also considered part of Chek Jawa.

Chek Jawa is teeming with marine wildlife – starfish, sea horses and octopi living in the sand and mud flats, carpet and peacock anemones in the sea-grass meadows, and sponges of all hues residing in the coral rubble...

This set of 4 stamps, designed by Eng Siak Loy, vividly potrays some of the wildlife found at Chek Jawa - Seashore Nutmeg, Oriental Pied Hornbill, Knobbly Sea Star, Seahorses. First day cover here is signed by Eng Siak Loy.
