KSNP Volunteers Day 2022 #9 – Mangrove Restoration (Mangrove Tree Planting – 24 September 2022)
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 of locals and stakeholders 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 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 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 #9 – As per the encouraging response from our previous programs, our September target is to plant 2500 mangrove saplings in the degraded area. Our volunteers will invest their time and energy to preserve our nature. The tree planting activity may be tiresome, dirty but definitely fulfilling and satisfying. To our regular volunteers, welcome back to the jungle!
