Save Mangroves in Southern Kuta

Save Mangroves in Southern KutaBadung County government establishes Working Groups (Pokja) for the preservation of mangrove forests existing in Southern Kuta. Aside from being a conservation effort, it is also a measure to increase the area of mangrove forest. The working groups are led by a number of People’s Empowerment Agencies (LPMs) in Southern Kuta subdistrict.

The area of Grand Forest Park (Tahura) in Bali reaches around 1,373.50 hectares, where it spreads across the area of 639.00 hectares in Badung and 734.50 hectares in Denpasar. “With the rescue and conservation movement, it can improve the mangrove forest area from 639.00 hectares to 1,000 hectares,” hoped the Regent of Badung AA Gde Agung, Thursday (Jun 27).

Regent Gde Agung said that preserving, increasing and maintaining were three important things. If they had been carried out, the mangrove forest area could certainly grow. “Preservation of mangrove forest is not sufficient just by planting. There must be an effort closely related to the maintenance of cleanliness of the litter in the mangrove forests,” said the regent.

On that account, Regent Gde Agung instructed the quick response team and Sanitation and Landscaping Agency (DKP) to come down and clean up the mangrove forest. “I see a lot of plastic trashes there,” he said.

Regent Gde Agung also instructed to do a remapping. It was to determine which areas could no longer be used, and which area still allowed for the increase of mangrove forest. “Essentially, there should be a zoning, so that it can be known which area belongs to mangrove forests and the areas for settlement,” said the regent.

The mangrove forest care forum was led by a number of LPMs in the area of mangrove forests in Southern Kuta, namely the Tanjung Benoa, Tengkulung, Benoa, Kedonganan, Kelan, Jimbaran and Tuban. Previously, it had been established a working group of Marine Protected Areas (KKP) and the Coastal Zoning Plan Working Group (RZWP). “Meanwhile, its decree is being prepared. Hopefully, it can be made an addition to the mangrove forest area up to 1,000 hectares,” concluded the regent. (BTN/015)
