Mangrove Rehabilitation in Bintan
Bintan, Riau Islands
Raja Ali Haji Maritime University
Environment Department (DLH) of Tanjung Pinang
This area used to be covered by mangroves. Due to economic development, mangroves have been cut to clear spaces. Fund this rehabilitation project to bring back the mangroves to their natural habitat and protect the local biodiversity.
Mangroves provide endless benefits for communities, we are providing an alternative income for local communities where approximately 90% of the inhabitants of Dompak Island work as coastal fishermen.
We have a big vision in this project to enable the utilization of what we have grown so that it can benefit our farmers by creating sustainable products such as Mangrove Soap and Mangrove Batik that are good for the environment, society, and customers. All of our efforts are to protect and restore damaged mangrove ecosystems while improving the livelihoods of local coastal communities.
