mangroves in phuket, thailand

last nov. 03, 2009; i had a chance 2visit d banbangrong coastal agrotourism proj. in phuket, thailand.

d pple of banbangrong are muslims & they r preserving their coastal ecosystem in accordance w/ d teachings of their religion…. tis s 1 very positive way of using faith 2preserve d environment w/out any question….

accordingly, d mangroves protected their community during d 2004 tsunami. banbangrong was not heavily damaged compared 2d whole of phuket island! tis made d pple of bangrong more aggressive in protecting d mangroves in their coastal community. they no longer cut d mangroves for charcoal or other purposes coz they’re makin more money in agrotourism…..guess wat! thier cooperative now have 30 million baht!

i hope d coastal pple in d philippines will do d same b4 lotz f men, women & children die in case of a tsunami! guess a great devastation will put an end 2d pervasive illegal charcoal making industry in d coastal villages in d philippines…..


lush mangroves....very2 nice indeed....

it was also my first time 2see w/ my own eyes a walkin fish! der wer lotz of mudskippers (amphibious fish) in d mangrove areas of phuket….very cool!
