Protecting the Environment by Planting Mangroves (Indonesia)
PT Pigeon Indonesia (PI) is committed to ‘leave a rich earth for the future of babies born tomorrow,’ and in partnership with Lindungi Hutan Foundation, we are planning to plant and monitor a total of 5,000 mangrove trees by the end of 2021 as part of an environmental conservation project.
On the Pantai Bahagia coastline, Muara Gembong sub-district, Bekasi regency, West Java province, PI will be planting Rhizophora sp., a type of mangrove that is suitable for planting in muddy areas and able to adapt to both fresh and sea water. The project not only reflects the company’s commitment to mitigating the effects of climate change, it is also part of the company’s efforts in preventing land abrasion on the northern coast of Java Island, Indonesia.
About the Activity
2,000 mangrove trees were planted by 15 volunteers from PI, the Lindungi Hutan Foundation, and the local community in the first phase of this program. The activity was held on June 5, 2021, World Environment Day, and the second phase of this program will be held on November 2021, when the rest of 3,000 mangroves will be planted in the same location.
