KSNP Volunteer’s Day 2022 #5 – Mangrove Restoration (Mangrove Tree Planting)
KSNP Volunteer Day program is held monthly on the third or fourth Saturday. This year the volunteer program is developed to rehabilitate the degraded areas and to restore and conserve a healthy mangrove ecosystem at KSNP through public engagement. Participation from the public, including MNS members, aims to empower the ownership and raise awareness on the importance of mangrove for its environmental resources and values.
This program was started in 2021 by Kuala Selangor Nature Park with support from MNS members and public partnerships. KSNP receives funds and support from various local and international corporate partners and funders to run the program successfully.
The objectives of this program are as below:
- To create an awareness on the importance of the mangrove ecosystem through the mangrove rehabilitation program for the conservation and protection of Kuala Selangor Nature Park.
- To nurture a society with a conservation mindset by participating in hands-on activities.
- To provide opportunity for the concerned public to contribute actively in the restoration of mangroves and ultimately, the betterment of our nature and environment.
- To strengthen the support and concern of the public in the protection of KSNP.
- As an educational platform for participants to know, feel and experience the mangrove ecosystem.
- To support the Government of Malaysia agenda through the 100 Million Tree-Planting Campaign.
KSNP Volunteer Day #5 – This time our target is to plant 2000 mangrove saplings in the degraded areas. The tree planting activity may be tiresome and dirty but we are sure the end result would be definitely fulfilling and satisfying. Here is some further information to share.
