Untar in collaboration with Seasoldier Foundation organized mangrove tree planting and beach cleaning activities on Tuesday (30/4) at Tanjung Pasir Beach, Teluknaga, Tangerang.

The activity, which was attended by lecturers, students, and employees, was held in order to welcome Untar’s 65th Anniversary and support the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). A total of 650 mangrove seedlings were planted and garbage cleaning was also carried out at Tanjung Pasir Beach.

Rector of Untar Prof. Dr. Ir. Agustinus Purna Irawan, M.T., M.M., I.P.U., ASEAN Eng. said that this event is a community service activity (PKM), as well as a form of Untar’s contribution to the 14th SDG (Life in the Sea) and 15th (Life on Land).

“Untar always supports the achievement of sustainable development or SDGs which is always echoed by various activities, one of which is mangrove planting and beach cleaning today,” he said.

“Mangrove plants can help reduce flooding and abrasion, so besides being beneficial for the ecosystem, it can also benefit people who live around the coast,” said Yehezkiel, who is also a nature enthusiast.
