In Brief: Mass mangrove planting in prey nob

The Fisheries Action Coalition Team (FACT), an environmental group, is to host a mass mangrove planting on Wednesday in Preah Sihanouk province. Nearly 10,000 mangrove seedlings will be planted in Prey Nob district, Andoung Thmar commune, in an event presided over by Nao Thouk, the director general of the Fisheries Administration and governor of Preah Sihanouk province. Mangrove forests are "essential in protecting the coastline, acting as a [self-sustaining] buffer zone against storms and strong winds, and reducing coastal erosion", a FACT statement read.
