Parks and Wildlife Plants Mangrove Along Bintang Bolong

The Department of Parks and Wildlife Management (DPWM), in collaboration with Sahel Wetland and communities of Kalagi Jifarong, Bondali and Brikama Ndinding, recently conducted a two-day mangrove planting in various parts of Bintang Bolong estuary. The Department of Parks and Wildlife Management’s technical team supervised the planting.

Speaking at the event, Kawsu Jammeh of Parks and Wildlife said while they are restoring mangroves, they must also recognised as conservationists to provide landing and feeding areas for water birds and habitat for mud crabs.

According to Mr Jammeh, The Gambia has quiet and good representative birds, reptiles, butterflies, insects, fishes and mammals that could be attractive to tourists.

“There is no more stock you can find anywhere except in and around protected areas,” he said.

 “We do not have to wait until the forest disappears completely,” he said, adding that they must endeavour to restore the wetland because they need a healthy environment to continue to support the necessary goods and services for both the wellbeing of the present and future generations.
