Salesian school students plant mangroves, for a positive impact on the environment

Over 50 students from the Salesian SME programme, together with teachers and parents, offered to plant mangrove trees and release small crabs at the Mangrove Forest Conservation Club in the Singhanakhon district. The aim was to have a positive impact on the environment and to contribute, through tree planting, to reducing soil degradation, minimising erosion and improving air quality in the region. Reforestation is a new beginning to restore the balance of nature. Mangroves in particular are of great importance to the ecology, environment, society and economy of many countries. Involving the young students of Salesian schools in the activities of mangrove planting and the liberation of small crabs is a formative moment seeking to make them aware of their duty to take care of the earth and the environment.
