Mangrove planting for coastal protection in Central Java

Mangkang is a fishing and farming village located in West Semarang. This project is answering to the needs of preserving the coastal side of the North Java Sea in Mangkang. About 1,1 km costal line in the Mangkang area is now in danger due to erosion, cutting of mangrove by local people and heavy force from the river flows. Before, many kinds of fish and shrimps lived there, but now since the condition of the mangrove forest has worsened, it is quite difficult to find these species anymore. Fishermen also need to put in more work and go further into the ocean to fish.

The garbage problem was raised again in the recent years. Lack of local awareness about environmentally friendly lifestyle destroys the nature slowly. People also face problem with the garbage management system, moreover there is no daily garbage pickup in the area. The local community started an initiative for creating stuff from recycled materials to decrease the impact of garbage to the nature.The main focus of the project is preserving the natural diversity and the sea shore from the erosion because there aren’t any mangrove anymore and the currents from the ocean are too strong. The aim is to initiate protection of the sea shore by planting mangroves and to increase the awareness of local people, fishermen and local students to protect their environment as well as their future.

The volunteers will be planting mangroves and other trees on the beach. They will also get involved in environment education and garbage management discussions with local people and local children. There will be some manual activities to support the garbage management program in this area, school visits for environment education, green campaign.

Project dates:

  • February 10 - February 19, 2020
  • July 15 - July 24, 2020
