2021 Mangrove Day Celebration

July 2021 has been a very colourful month for Malaysia as we joined the world to celebrate the International Day for the Conservation of the Mangrove Ecosystems. We have seen powerful optimisms and strong positive signals, commitment and awareness from all sectors i.e., the government, the academia, the NGOs, CBOs, CSOs, the media, the corporate sector and the public at large. As we all agree, mangrove conservation requires everyone’s involvement to make it work and successful. Now let’s keep the spirit high to ensure our mangroves are better protected and conserved.

To keep the momentum going as well as to recap, here is the list of all events and happenings with regards to Malaysian mangroves for your kind viewing, listening and reading pleasures, and for your future reference. Thank you all for the contributions and supports to making 2021’s World Mangrove Day a glorious one. Have an awesome mangrove year ahead from all of us at The Malaysian Mangrove Research Alliance and Network (MyMangrove)! AAA. 1.8.2021.
