Jalan-jalan to Mangrove Conservation – Carbon Zero Project

August 23 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm

Do you know that Mangroves can store up to 10 times as much carbon as terrestrial forests?

There’s a fresh nature-based carbon project in town, and she’s getting attention from corporations with ambitious net-zero goals. Her name? Mangroves are a type of tree species and coastal forest ecosystem native to the tropics and subtropics.

Mangroves in Bali are a vital part of the coastal ecosystem.

The removal of large areas of mangroves for industrial purposes can significantly alter these precious coastal ecosystems. This can have a broader effect on the community, threatening vital clean water sources, tourist industries, and the food supplies on which we rely. In addition to this, the root system of a mangrove forest serves to stabilize the coastline, providing protection from storm surges. Being a small archipelago made up of 17,000 islands, Indonesia is particularly vulnerable to rising sea levels or intense tropical storms linked to Global Warming.

Green School Carbon Zero team invites you to join the Mangrove planting and wander around at Mangrove conservation in Tahura, Ngurah Rai Benoa
