Sabah, Borneo – Destroyed mangrove Ecosystem
Two tractors are being used to cut and destroy parts of the Mangrove Forest in Kg.Boluuh, Pitas. The destruction of the forests has led to rising temperatures in the area; which will only get worse if the felling of mangrove trees is not stopped. We urge the authorities to protect our mangroves and the ecosystem it supports. Unsustainable and indiscriminate aquaculture development – shrimp farming – will have a greater negative effect; rather than positive benefits for the peoples of this land.
