What we did
In 2009, we collaborated with IUCN and Mangroves for the Future to implement CBEMR training workshops in Ban Tale Nok, Ranong Province and Krabi Town, Krabi Province, Thailand. Field visits to previously restored mangrove sites allowed participants to engage in discussion regarding issues each site faced. The training involved a mixture of presentations, learning exercises and Q&A sessions.
Through the knowledge gained, villagers were able to successfully restore 0.7ha of mangroves using the principles and methods of CBEMR. Community members have also seen a noticeable increase in both vertebrates and invertebrates at each restoration site. The site at Ban Tale Nok is now used as a demonstration site and is regularly visited by study groups, homestay tourists and students.
"The training was so interesting, and it was valuable to see this is a worldwide issue and how we can use different techniques to restore mangroves"
