Living within climate and within all the changes we have produced, we humans act as the author of our climate system. However, the fact that as the ones who take responsibility for it is still unable to make us realize that some little things that we did, what we are doing, and what we will be doing will have an impact on Mother Earth. We often do not think about this, about how Mother Earth survives the inevitable mess humans have been making.
Then, there comes our realization of how the great Mother Earth provides nature for us with numerous gifts such as air, water, land, sunlight, minerals, plants, and animals. All these gifts of nature make our earth a place worth living in, and the blessing of nature is what makes us able to breathe freely and do our job properly, whether we admit it or not.
We live at the intersection of land and sea, where mangrove forests provide ideal habitats for fish, crustaceans, and other organisms seeking food and shelter. Their dense tangle of prop roots stabilizes coastlines and are well adapted to the daily rise and fall of tides. And now the world’s mangrove forests are being degraded and lost at an alarming rate between 35-50%. That condition triggered us to support the conservation of mangrove trees as our commitment to grow sustainability for the future.
Our commitment is implemented through a small movement called Mangrove Tree Planting which annually occurs in the middle of the year. This year, 2023, we planted 500 mangrove trees on Taman Wisata Alam (TWA) Angke Kapuk on July 2023, in accordance with Indonesia’s response to the threats facing mangrove ecosystems.
We sincerely hope that this protection movement from PT Jaya Obayashi in supporting mangrove tree conservation can gradually help mangrove rehabilitation in Indonesia.
So, walk the talk and act now.
