Mauritius: The authorities want to protect the mangroves located in mangrove swamps of the island




The Ministry of Environment and the United Nations Program for Development (UNDP) are conducting campaigns to protect mangroves located along the coast in marsh areas of of Mauritius and in the numerous islets off the coast as especially on the island of Amber where they are listed in numbers.
 
Mangroves are an ideal natural habitat for fish, crustaceans and other birds in Mauritius in the heart of mangrove swamps threatened and are the last defense in the delicate balance of the ecosystem.
 
Mangroves bear the brunt for decades of human development and coastal related activities, as reported by the Le Défi Quotidien newspaper.
 
The sites of Mon-Choisy, Quatre Soeurs and Rivière-des-Galets were chosen upstream in order to be targeted by different actions.
 
The planting of mangrove seedlings on the Mauritian threatened coastline has been so entrusted to more young people to become aware of the necessary environmental safeguards.
