Planting Mangroves Together

As a city located right by the sea, mangroves forests are an essential element of the ecosystem to maintain the city’s state. Mangroves prevent abrasion and provide stability for coastal land, preventing it from sinking. Furthermore, their roots provide favorable habitat for sea creatures, especially the ones consumable to human.

Seeing that mangroves population needs to be increased, Sahabat Alam planted mangroves together with children and youths at Eco- Tourism Area located at Sedyatmo Highway, Jakarta. Through this event, hopefully young generation would be more aware of the importance of mangroves, especially for Jakarta and plant more mangroves on their own.
