Reforestasi dan Kemitraan Yagasu untuk Restorasi

Indonesia is the most affected country by deforestation. Its forests are disappearing twice as fast as in the Amazon: the equivalent of the surface of a football field is destroyed every ten seconds. This massive deforestation is mainly due to the replacement of mangroves by oil palms for the production of palm oil.

The oil palm industry is indeed an important financial source for the country. But it is endangering the rich biodiversity of Indonesian forests, home to 10% of global plant species, 12% of mammal species, 16% of reptile species and 17% of bird species. Since the summer of 2017, Reforest'Action has been working with the Indonesian NGO Yagasu, which works to reforest the mangroves in the north of Sumatra.

Yagasu ensures that young mangroves grow properly. The recovery rate is excellent: 90% of mangroves survived the first few months after planting. The loss of the remaining 10% is due to the abuse of young trees by cirripeds, small marine organisms that parasitize mangroves. High tides can also be responsible for the drowning of some plants. In order to solve the problems encountered, Yagasu works alongside the inhabitants of the villages. Trees that have not survived will be replaced by Avicennia mangroves, another species less valued by cirripeds.

These are their activies with us :
