We invite you to get involved in the Mangkang Enviromental Project in Semarang to preserve the coastal side of North Java Sea by participating in Cleaning the Environment and Planting Mangrove Campaigns.
This area is now in danger due to the abrasion of the sea, the cutting of mangrove by local factories and the heavy force from the river flows. There used to be a lot of fish and shrimp ecosystem but since the condition of the mangrove forest is getting worse it is quite difficult to find them anymore and the Fishermen need to go further to the ocean to fish which also has a negative environmental impact.
Garbage problem was also re-raised in the recent years due to the lack of local awareness about environmental friendly lifestyle. There is not an integrated garbage management system in this area, neither daily truck garbage picker in this area. Local communities started to make recycle activities to decrease the impact in the nature.
