Everything you need to know about our new waste bank initiative in Kiabu Village.
The highlights of the second term of 2021.
This September marked the first time Kiabu Village took part in World Cleanup Day.
In Kiabu, non-recyclable waste like used pads are incinerated, an environmentally unfriendly waste management practice that can affect the physical well-being of the community and lead to air, land and water pollutions.
They are great for carbon absorption and offer huge economic values for local communities because they provide habitat for fish, also their fruits can be used to make jam, syrup and chips.
Blast fishing is a prevalent and serious issue in Indonesia, an archipelagic country with rich marine biodiversity.
1.2 hectares of the regency’s area have been designated as a Marine Protected Area (MPA), making Anambas one of the largest conservation areas in Indonesia.
Organisms that live in the benthic zone are called benthos, the term itself comes from the Greek word meaning “depth of sea.”
