Disappearing Mangroves

Residents fishing along the edge of a dead mangrove forest near Bedono village in Demak, Central Java, on Wednesday (07/06). Data provided by the Ministry of Environment and Forestry shows that about 52 percent of Indonesia's 3.49 million hectares of mangrove forests are damaged, with an annual decline of about 200,000 hectares, due to deforestation in coastal ecosystems, reclamation and excessive marine exploitation.
