Mangrove Planting Event with the North Sumatra Branch of the Ministry of Finance and YAGASU in Rugemuk Village, Pantai Labu, Deli Serdang, North Sumatra
During the mangrove planting activity, a total of 500 Rhizophora mangrove seedlings were simultaneously planted by the participants. Rhizophora was chosen for its strong roots, which effectively combat coastal erosion and provide protection for fish and other marine life.
Mangrove planting represents a concrete step in efforts to preserve the environment and reduce the impacts of climate change. Additionally, this activity provides an opportunity for local communities to actively participate in the safeguarding of their coastal ecosystems, which serve as their source of livelihood.
The Ministry of Finance and YAGASU hope that this event can serve as an inspiring example for other regions across Indonesia to join in preserving the environment and climate for a better future. The current mangrove planting marks a significant first step in the long journey to protect our planet from the increasingly evident impacts of climate change.
