Pulau Semakau is part of the Southern Islands of Singapore, and it's main function is that of a Landfill site, created in 1999 by enclosing Pulau Semakau and a small adjacent island (Pulau Sakeng) with a rock bund.
The original island not affected by landfill construction is home to an enormous intertidal area rich in marine wildlife. The natural mangroves there shelter a wide variety of plants and animals, many no longer seen on the mainland or other islands. There is a vast seagrass meadow, possibly the largest in Singapore and a wide zone of coral rubble leading to the coral reefs that line the edge of the island.
