Taurama locals clean up mangroves at Tuna Bay

Close to 100 people were involved in the first ever National Capital District Mangrove Cleanup Campaign Program today (Saturday 7 November).

The program was initiated by CFDA in partnership with the Office of Climate Change and Development (OCCD), NCDC Waste Management, University of PNG and Nambawan Super.

The participants picked up plastic bags and any non-biodegradable materials in the 5 hectares of mangrove environment.

The aim of  the campaign program is to inform the local communities about the bio diversity of the mangrove habitat environment.
