A proposal has been presented by the Minister of Wildlife and Forest Conservation to initiate a mangrove cultivation project in designated areas for the protection of marine and freshwater species, local and foreign birds, river and lagoon wildlife, and environmental conservation. 

A preliminary discussion in this regard was held at the Ministry recently.

Accordingly, it has been proposed to plant 100,000 mangroves in an area of 500 hectares under this project and the project will be carried out by an NGO.
