Kukup Laut , Johor

Located South-west of Johor 1 km off shore from the quaint little fishing village of Kampung Air Masin in Kukup Laut (Pontian District), Pulau Kukup is an island entirely covered by mangrove forest and surrounded by mudflats – the mudflats extend up to a few kilometres on the West and Northwest of the island. There is currently no human habitation or man made structures on the island.
In order to promote preservation of this unique mangrove habitat, Pulau Kukup is designated as a Ramsar site (or otherwise known as a Wetlands of International Importance) on 31 January 2003, it is also protected as a national park under the Johor State Park Corporation Enactment 1989 since 27 March 1997.
Pulau Kukup is dissected by a few tidal creeks and channels. Six channels/creeks flow through Pulau Kukup: Sungai Ular, Sungai Solok, Sungai Sedang, Sungai Tong Kang, Sungai Merah and Sungai Jempol. Most of the channels are narrow and blind and very picturesque, being fringed by the stilt roots of Rhizophora and breathing roots of Sonneratia and Avicennia.

Pulau Kukup is relatively rich in biological diversity although it is a small isolated island from the mainland. It is home to 27 species of true and associated mangrove species which include common species such as Bakau Minyak Rhizophora apiculata, Bakau Kurap Rhizophora mucronata, Tumu Bruguiera cylindrica, Perepat Sonneratia alba dan Api-api Avicennia spp. So far 12 wildlife species have been recorded on the island include protected species such as the Smooth Otter, Dusky Leaf Monkey, Long tailed Macaque and Wild boars.
The rich diversity of marine aquatic life here which includes the shrimps, crabs, shellfish and marine fishes remain the main source of income for local fishermen. The island provides shelter and nursery grounds for these marine lives. In addition, the island physically protects the cage culture industry which is located along the Straits of Kukup from strong winds and waves. Commercial fish species cultured here include the Sea Bass, Grouper and Mangrove Snapper which are largely destined for overseas market.
Pulau Kukup harbours at least 76 bird species which broadly include forest birds, raptors and waterbirds such as the Lesser Adjutant, Grey Heron, Mangrove Pitta, Collared Kingfisher and Brahminy Kite. It is also one of the important migratory stop-over sites for shorebirds such as Whimbrel, Redshank, Greenshank and Common Sandpiper. These birds are commonly seen at the island from September till February the following year. One can also observe the migration of raptors such as the Oriental Honey Buzzard, which hovers over the sky enroute their travel to Indonesia. This is evident between September and December.

Visitors can access Kukup town from various points: using the North-South Highway, exit at Simpang Renggam toll and turn left towards Benut and proceed to Pontian/Kukup; another route is from Johor Bahru through Skudai and proceed to Pontian; foreign visitors from Singapore and Tanjung Balai (Indonesia) can access the town through ferry services. From Kukup town, visitors can access the island by tourist boats.
Visitors who plan to visit this mangrove island are advised to first register at the Pulau Kukup Johor National Park office located in the town centre in Kukup, before proceeding to the nearby jetty.

Pulau Kukup.

Pulau Kukup -  How to get there?


Pulau Kukup State Park designated on 31st January 2003, 647 ha, 01°19′N 103°25′E.
is a mangrove island located at about 1 km offshore from the south-western region of the state of Johor, Peninsular Malaysia.
 It is a small mangrove island (approximately 647.2 ha) surrounded by mudflats (about 800 ha).
 The island experienced extensive harvesting for mangrove wood back in the 80′,
 however, wood extracting operations from this island had ceased since August 1993. 
Regeneration of mangrove tree species has indeed taken place since then.

The natural resources of Pulau Kukup have never been studied in detail. As a result, these types of wetland habitats are under-represented and ignored in the list of wetland habitats of national importance. Pulau Kukup was officially gazetted as a State Park under the jurisdiction of the Johor State Park Corporation on 27 March 1997. 
The objective of turning this island into a state park was to promote preservation of this habitat in Peninsular Malaysia, as well to promote the eco-tourism sector and to provide research avenues.
The main reason of turning Pulau Kukup into a state park was for conservation purposes, the Johor State Park Corporation strongly believed that an ecological assessment of the whole island was needed as data on the natural resources of Pulau Kukup are very scarce. Wetlands International was commissioned by the Johor State Park Corporation to carry out a study on the ecological assessment of Pulau Kukup, Johor.
Wetland has a lot of values and benefits for the economic. It can contribute to the fisheries, water supply, aquaculture, wild life, resources, transport, recreation and tourism opportunities. Pulau Kukup also has the biodiversity attractions. It is containing 50% of the world true mangrove species. It is also home to 12 species of fauna and 76 species of birds. For its marine life, it has many species of fish, crabs and micro-benthic organism.


Visitor Information Centre 
A visit to the park begins at the Visitor Information Centre. This is located on the mainland, opposite the bus station in Pekan Kukup. The centre houses an Information Gallery and the park office. Here, visitors can obtain some practical information about Pulau Kukup JNP and nearby Tanjung Piai Johor National Park, as well as other national parks in Johor. Visitors can also make enquiries about guided tours, which should be booked for in advance.

Information Gallery
Located at the Visitor Information Centre, the gallery houses artifacts and photographs depicting Kukup’s rich social history. There will also be information about the mangroves of Kukup, and the interdependent link between the island and people on the mainland. At the time of writing, the Info Gallery was still in the process of being set up.
The jetty is the landmark to the Pulau Kukup National Park.

Board Walk
The boardwalk enables visitors to observe at close hand the different vegetation that make up the forest, as well as the moveable feast of contrast that is a mangrove. Long-tailed macaques are a sure sight, as are mud-skippers hopping across the mudflats, skinks slithering along driftwood and a whole host of aquatic organisms, each going about its own business totally oblivious to visitors, and each intimately interdependent upon the other. But employ some patience and an eye for detail, and some other miraculous encounter may unfold.
Observation Tower
There are two, 15 metre high observation towers located on either end of the suspension bridge. These offer a great view of your surroundings, and you want to do a spot of bird-watching from here. Otherwise, you can just relax and watch the world go by.
Suspension Bridge
Pulau Kukup’s famous suspension bridge is something of a tourist attraction with visitors. The bridge straddles Sungai Ular and spans 30m across. From the middle of the bridge there is a picture-perfect view of Kukup village on the mainland and the boats at the quay. Care must be exercised while on the bridge – read the clearly-displayed caution signs and follow them to the letter. Only three persons are allowed on the bridge at any one time, and it is preferable to maintain a 10-metre gap. Strictly no running, jumping, playing on or shaking the bridge. And please avoid acts of childishness. It may all seem like common sense, but you know what they say about common sense all too often being anything but common!
This six-storey structure measures 30m high. From the top, you will have an excellant bird’s eye view of the island, the tree tops and the neighbouring islands. A good place to try birding. Please observe all warnings that are clearly posted around the aery. Only 15 persons are allowed on each floor at any one time.
