Preserves Environment by Planting Mangroves in Sanur Bali15 August 2010
Simultaneously hundreds of people participated in the environmental activities in Mertasari Beach, Sanur to plant mangrove. They also conducted the mangrove re-planting at other locations but still in Mertasari area.
“The coastal preservation by mangroves is not only intended to anticipate coastal erosion, but also to bolster the economy of community around the coastal areas in the future,” said Chairman of the Sanur Village Festival (SVF) 2010 Committee, Ida Bagus Sidharta Putra on the sidelines of social movement of planting mangroves recently.
Endeavor of Sanur community to save the coastal preservation was not only held this time, but since the first. Even, the planting of mangrove carried out in the SVF 2009 indicated that approximately 90 percent of the mangroves could grow well. According to Sidhartha, the planting pattern of mangrove was not intended to focus on reaching the target of particular amount of trees but on the amount of growing mangroves. Sidhartha who is also Chairman of the Sanur Development Foundation (YPS) said his party had allocated some budgets for the care of the mangrove planting. “What we have done all this time can not be enjoyed directly at the moment, but it’s for the sake of our future generations,” he observed.
Interestingly, in the socio-environmental activity the YPS together with non-governmental organization and customary village had reached an agreement to establish a Mangrove Lover Forum that would make mapping of Mertasari Beach consisting of 17 hectares to be re-greened. Besides, it would also make the Standard Operation Procedure (SOP) for the institutions or companies that would do the planting of mangroves in the region where they should provide funds for maintenance until growing well.
In the recent SVF event, Sidhartha added, the environmental action program referred to real actions against the impact of global warming consisting of recycling, reducing, reusing, re-planting and recovering (5R). The program would be conducted in the field of environmental education for school children of PPLH, turtle hatchling release, coral reef planting, mangrove planting, environmental exhibitions by various environmental NGOs coalesced into the members of Blue Green Community, discussions and screening of environmental documentary film and beach clean up.
