Volunteers to this program will experience the biodiversity of the mangrove swamp, where you will learn about mangrove trees, their ecological importance and restoration of mangrove swamp efforts.
Mangrove ecosystems are important in this area as the main livelihood of the community is fishing. The mudflat and swamps are stopover and feeding places for the various species of migratory birds. The community is actively venturing into cottage industries as an alternative livelihood while promoting sustainable management and conservation of mangrove forest to others.
Volunteers will spend time collecting seedlings, planting mangroves, learning about primates, birds and many other animals which call the mangroves their home. You will also have the opportunity to experience how villagers live, work & eat and you may even learn some Bahasa Malaysia!
