Cambodia- Restoring mangrove forest in Kampot


Mangrove trees are distinguished by the ability to store amounts of carbon dioxide that is toxic to the environment and protect beaches from degradation, besides being a shelter for fish and many marines and terrestrial species. Fishermen in Kampong and Tapaeng Sagke villages, Kampot province, southern Cambodia, funded by agricultural foundations, precede planting mangroves to protect biodiversity and improve their resources. Mangroves are evergreen perennial trees that grow in swamps of fresh and salty water, as well as on the coasts and their roots are often submerged in water.
