To protect their coastline from salt water erosion and intrusion, villagers are replanting mangrove along the coastline.

Naividamu Village Headman Tomasi Moli says the plan now is to rehabilitate their eroding coastline to protect the school and the village.

So far, they have planted around 2,000 mangroves.

World Wide Fund for Nature – Pacific (WWF-Pacific) and Community Centred Conservation (C3), are assisting the villagers in the replanting activities.

WWF-Pacific’s Macuata Field Officer, Opeti Vateitei says mangroves are great agents against coastal erosion and once these mangroves become well established, they will be great buffer zones for the community of Naividamu.
