SHORE and marine life will feel the impact of last Tuesday's oil spill for some time to come, experts here have said.

The disaster has also galvanised environmentalists and other members of the public, who have been volunteering their time to rescue shore creatures and document the spill.

The spill, which tipped some 2,500 tonnes of crude oil into the ocean off Changi East, has slicked creatures such as crabs at East Coast and sea snails at Changi Beach.
