Protected Places In Singapore: Pedra Branca and Others

Protected Places In Singapore: Pedra Branca And Others

Pedra Branca is an island to the east of Singapore that is declared as one of the protected places in Singapore. In one of my earlier posts, I had expressed a lunatic desire to visit Pedra Branca.

Today I just learnt that trespassers of protected areas and protected places in Singapore are liable to be fined or jailed if caught without a valid permit or permission. If you are interested in the finer details, you can read up on the Protected Areas and Protected Places Act here. I guess I'll have to wait for the official Pedra Branca open house ......

Pedra Branca is not the only protected place in Singapore. There are many such protected places in Singapore. In my travels around Singapore for my Seen This Scene That hobby, I have seen several protected places with a big red warning sign of a person pointing a weapon at another; but at that time, the need to snap a photograph was not apparent.

Currently I have only two photographs of such protected places in Singapore. Do you recognise where these protected places are?

Protected Place Number 2 (below):


If you have more pictures of such protected places, why not put them up on your blog and leave a message in the comments below so that I can take a look?

Do you know of any other protected areas and protected places in Singapore?

It would be interesting... not sure within legal act to also get Google Earth satellite photos to complement the terrestrial ones.

One such large red warning sign is at Seletar East Camp entrance... now defunct.

I have one photo in my blog several posts ago when we went for Nature Walks before the "Kampong" feel of the place gets demolished for aerospace hub.

Hi Muhd Imran, thanks for sharing. Looked like you had a great time over there!

Yes, a wonderful and quite nostalgic time just like living in a kampung where life is laid-back and serene.

The guide was great too. The nature walk was nice, identifying all the different types of local trees and its uses mostly in the olden days.
