Mangrove Planting in Chonburi, Thailand 2019
On the 29th of September 2019 Flight of the Gibbon successfully continued our Mangrove Planting Project by planting over 500 mangrove saplings on Samae Sarn Island in Chonburi. This is the second year that we will be taking part in this project and we would like to thank all involved parties including Royal Thai Navy Seals, Thai Island, Sea Natural History Museum team, Off-road team, Thai Eco Solutions, Flight of the Gibbon staff, volunteers and partners.

 

The planting site this year is on the Samae Sarn island, which is nearby “Thai Island and Sea Natural History Museum” area where we planted hundreds of mangroves last year. The day of the event started with gathering all parties and volunteers of the short ceremony about the introduction and purpose of this event. After that everyone went to the island where is the planting site is located by speed boat around 20 minutes to arrive at Samae Sarn island.

The process to plant mangrove saplings is quite technical and time consuming. The mangroves must be planted above the low tide line and below the high tide line. Also, the tubes that house the mangrove saplings are layered with various dirt, clay, rocks and gravel. They are also counter sunk to protect them from strong winds. Maintenance is then carried out on a regular basis including weeding and fertilizing.

Mangroves are a diminishing resource and provide huge benefits to local ecosystems. They provide habitat for thousands of various species, protect the coastline from erosion and maintain water quality and clarity. Our goal is to continue these events yearly including our tree planting throughout Thailand and help to inspire others to join the eco-tourism revolution, whether it’s getting involved and helping out or encouraging people to make eco-friendly buying decisions.

About Flight of the Gibbon
The origins of Flight of the Gibbon date back to 2007. The company was the vision of New Zealand adventurer David Allardice, a well-known explorer who loved adventure sports and Asia. To enable others to experience the beauty and majesty of the Thai rainforest that he adored so much, David set up Thailand’s first ever treetop Zipline course. With a passion for the outdoors and the environment, David wanted to create a safe and eco-friendly business model. This would benefit the local community, wildlife and the environment, and at the same time provide something unique that people would truly enjoy.
Our Mission
