A study of Pulau Ubin commissioned by the National Heritage Board and led by anthropologist Vivienne Wee has uncovered multiple layers of social history, religious practices and economic activity through interviews with islanders. The project, which started in April, is expected to be completed by January next year. It is one of the board's contributions to an ongoing Ubin Project led by the Ministry of National Development to preserve the island's nature, biodiversity and heritage. Melody Zaccheus looks at some of the findings so far.
