Planting Ground (Baung Penyu)

 

The baby corals we obtained from the Acropora fields are then planted in our planting site- Baung Penyu. This site was once home to an impressive fringing reef. However, due to factors such as oil runoff and marine debris pollution, it has now been mostly turned into rubble. We hope that by planting our baby corals here, we can someday see Baung Penyu restored into the beautiful coral reef ecosystem it used to be.

The Restoration Stewards program provides funding, mentorship and training to deepen the impact of youth-led restoration projects. The year-long program is run by the Youth in Landscapes Initiative (YIL) and the Global Landscapes Forum (GLF) under the banner of Generation Restoration to support and highlight the work of eight young restoration practitioners and their teams in 2023.

During the program, the Restoration Stewards and their teams are  supported to further develop their project and serve as ambassadors at both global and local levels. Globally, the Restoration Stewards share their journeys in a series of vlogs and blogs documenting their stories of inspiration and challenges and participate in different international events to showcase their work. Locally, they are sparking a restoration movement, mobilizing local communities and creating pathways to connect, share, learn, and act for livelihoods and landscapes.
