Seafood Savers WWF ID dan PT Bogatama Marinusa (PT Bomar) menggandeng Aquaculture Celebes Community (ACC), sebagai mitra dalam program rehabilitasi mangrove. Kolaborasi ini terwujud dalam bentuk penanaman serentak 5000 bibit pohon mangrove.  Kegiatan ini dilaksanakan di Kelurahan Pallameang, Kec. Mattirosompe’, Kab. Pinrang, Sabtu (23/6). Lokasi tersebut dipilih menjadi representasi penerapan budidaya Udang Windu berkelanjutan, sesuai standar Aquaculture Stewardship Counsil (ASC) dan Marine Stewardship Council (MSC).

Perwakilan dari Japanese Consumer’s Co-operative Union (JCCU) turut serta dalam kegiatan ini. Tidak hanya itu, seratus orang relawan dari  berbagai komunitas lingkungan dan siswa yang ada di Makassar dan Pinrang juga ikut berkontribusi menanam mangrove.

Acara penanaman ini, dimulai dengan sambutan dari perwakilan PT. Bomar, Seafood Savers WWF-ID dan JCCU. Setelah itu, diskusi singkat terkait program penanaman mangrove. Kemudian, relawan dan tamu undangan diarahkan ke lokasi tambak untuk mulai menanam mangrove.

Program ini diharapkan menjadi salah satu upaya promosi mengenai pentingnya menjaga kelestarian mangrove. Sebab, tumbuhan ini adalah salah satu penopang keberhasilan budidaya tambak,  yang juga berfungsi mencegah terjadinya abrasi, menyediakan unsur hara dan tempat berlindung berbagai organisme perairan. Begitu besar peran mangrove dalam menyediakan jasa lingkungan. Semoga harapan “Menananam Mangrove Menumbuhkan Harapan”, bisa terwujud.
