Mangrove Mornings

This blog post comes from Action For Nature’s newest youth blogger Patricia Goeyardi.

One beautiful morning at the mangrove forest near Sanur area (Bali – Indonesia), there were many birds, mangrove trees and one-claw crabs. Here at this nature park, there are many towers and wooden walking paths. You wouldn’t believe what you can see here. It’s completely amazing. Sadly, there is a lot of rubbish. People need to realize that they should only throw rubbish into the rubbish bins, because the mangrove forest is attached to the Sanur beach. This means that all of the rubbish that is not disposed of correctly goes to the sea, pollutes the water and will kill most of the animals there, especially the turtles that have a tendency to eat the plastic trash accidentally.

When you come to this park, it’s better to wear your sneakers because it will be just like a real trek. There are two wooden paths with different trails. One is a long trail that might take two hours to walk around and the other is a short trail that might take half-an-hour to finish. The view is beautiful, especially at three o’clock in the afternoon. This is the best time to take pictures, because its when various birds appear and the sun shines softly. On your walk, you can learn about plants and animals because there are explanations written on wooden boards at the’bale bengong’ (stopping areas). it’s really fun here. Don’t forget to bring your camera to capture the best moments with your family and friends.

    Hey Patricia,
    Congratulation. Your courage and care to acknowledge the environmental miss-management may lead you to further remedial measurement. Indeed inspire others to follow.
    Our mother nature provides all human needs, include all knowledge initially tough by nature. Keeping, usage and wise management of nature resources will keep the balance of nature. Balance of mind and soul will perhaps encourage people to think and act peacefully…Peace then be found….Good Luck.
