MANGROVE forests are highly diverse coastal ecosystems that play a crucial role as a nursery for marine life, thus ensuring bountiful fishing in the future. Mangrove forests are vital breeding grounds for marine life, nesting sites for birds and habitats for insects. Mangroves also afford protection for coral and prevent coastal erosion.
It is in this premise that Kong Hua School ’94 conducted a mangrove planting activity last Sunday (July 7, 2019) at Baybay, Alubijid, Misamis Oriental.
The activity, headed by their president and environmentalist Althea Lim, was a resounding success.
“We are proud to be able to do this, to give back where it counts,” Lim said.
There was a raffle of tickets as part of their first activity after the mangrove planting as fund raising for the Kong Hua School annual grand alumni homecoming this November 30, 2019 at Limketkai Atrium. Kong Hua School ’94 will be the host batch of the event.
