Infanta begins restoration of mangrove forests
MetadataShow full item record
Haribon Foundation together with the Maralitang Mangingisda ng Munting Sabang Association (MMMSA), Municipal Government of Infanta and the Sangguniang Barangay of Dinahican planted 3,500 of mangrove seedlings to restore one hectare of mangrove forest in Brgy. Dinahican, Infanta, Quezon Province. Mangroves are a vital component of the coastal and marine ecosystems that consist of seagrass and coral reefs—homes of marine wildlife. They serve as a barrier from storm surges, waves, tides and current, act as a carbon sink by reducing organic pollution along shore areas, stabilize the coastline by reducing erosion, and serve as recreational grounds for wildlife enthusiasts.
