Mangrove Plantation – World Forestry Day

In support to World Forestry Day celebration Harta sent 10 staff to help in planting more than 600 mangrove seedlings at Beting Labu Lemak, a newly formed island off the Klang Island Forest Reserve on 13 April 2010. The activity was organized by Forestry Department of Selangor and supported by Global Environment Protection (GEP) an NGO. All volunteers enjoyed the unique experience of planting the Avicennia sp. And Sonneratia sp. seedlings. The mangrove planting was an initial step as part of a much longer term plan to support the rehabilitation of the mangroves in the Klang Islands.
