Introducing Mangroves to Children
YAKOPI also taught how to plant trees properly, planting trees is also not just ceremonial after trees are planted there is no more supervision and care because if planting is only ceremonial we will not know whether our plants can adapt to their environment or not. To evaluate the mangroves that have been planted, the program is designed with a maximum of three meetings and every two weeks the children can see the results of the plants they have planted.
At the end of the program voulentir and the YAKOPI team always explain to students that without plants we cannot live because we will lack oxygen and humans need a lot of oxygen to breathe in order to live. It’s time for us to thank plants and we have to preserve plant life by planting various plants around us.
We can conclude that program planting mangrove can provide positive energy in itself for children and parents who are involved in planting mangroves because the trees we plant and care for will provide benefits to our environment in the future.
The best time to plant trees was 20 years ago. The second best time is now, so from now on we teach future generations to protect the environment from childhood.
