In addition to the planting activity, the voluntary group also paid a visit to the local primary school and delivered the Green Lesson to the primary students to help them understand about the importance and value of mangrove forests in protecting humans’ life from natural disasters and promoting the diversity of biological system.

Over the past ten years, over 1,000 hectares of mangrove forests have been planted in Quang Ninh province, in which over 650 hectares were planted in Tien Yen district. Local people have gained lots of benefits from a wide coverage of mangrove forest which served as the walls to protect local households from landslides as consequences of typhoons or earthquake and contributed to higher aquarium productivity.
