Yagasu Team with UPT. KPH 3 Langsa, and the Sungai Lueng village community group carried out mangrove patrol activities in Sungai Lueng Village, East Langsa District, Langsa City.
This Mangrove Patrol is routinely carried out by Yagasu which aims to observe the condition of the Mangrove forest, and then identify events encountered in the forest and forest area. The results of the patrol in Sungai Lueng Village this time, it was found that there was clearing of habitat from forest to incentive ponds.
The patrol team also found a wooden boat carrying approximately 100 felled Mangrove logs, from this finding the patrol team followed up by conducting in-depth interviews with the loggers, which was followed by providing education to the loggers.
Hopefully, with the Mangrove patrol this time, the loggers are aware of the education we provide, and will not cut down Mangroves again in the future.
