Participatory Mangrove Nursery and Plantations

Publié: 14 novembre 2015
Dernière modification: 28 avril 2021

We trained local community in seed collection, nursery raising techniques and plantation in selected sites by using locally adaptable strategies and low cost techniques. We have conducted village meetings to identify selected place for mangrove resotraiton, without disturbing daily life of fishers. We involved local community volunteers in fencing mangrove areas to prevent cattle grazing and put public sign boards as protected site. During suitable season, local community volunteers were involved to collect mangrove seeds, especially women groups involved in mangrove seed collection, segregation. Fisher men involved in building mangrove nurseries.

Enseignements tirés

Any marine conservation project needs to be longterm, participatory, using low cost technology and community oriented which has to be designed by local experts with community leaders. Traditional knowledge has to be incorporated while developing conservation techniques such as mangrove plantation techniques.

  • Selection of suitable mangrove species and suitable restoration sites and suitable plantation season. The strategy should formed based on the above three aspects.
  • Seeds should be collected in right time, premonsoon, or they will washed up into the sea by monsoon.
  • Never go for huge, mass mangrove plantation events, which will waste resources and plants. Instead plant mangroves every season slowly in only selected, well recognized sites by local community or there will be no mangroves trees after some years.
