Mangrove give way to big business
MetadataShow full item record
The Tombonuo homeland in northern Borneo had been home to mangroves, saltwater-loving trees that anchor a web of life. Now the trees are gone after a Malaysian company bulldozed swaths of mangroves to make space for plastic-lined ponds filled with millions of king prawns. The farm’s expansion came at a heavy cost to the environment.
