Do not chase residents out, conserve the wooden buildings. That is one huge step.

Oftentimes in trying to preserve "heritage" (used in the above to be an all embracing term), we tend to neglect one aspect of the heritage, preserve one and the rest gets less limelight.

Cultural, natural, historical and architectural heritage all fall hand in hand in hand for this case.

So much emphasis on nature. But what about the built environment of Ubin? The wooden houses?

I used to go cycling in Pulau Ubin. There was this uncle that will set out to the sea to catch crabs at the swamp. Managed to follow him couple of time, get myself dirtied with big piles of mug. Guess what? He always reward me with the big and fresh crabs to be brought back to Singapore
