Iboih Village on Weh Island is located on the most westerly point of Indonesia, in Aceh province. The island was spared from serious damage by the December 2004 tsunami that devastated so much of Aceh. But debris from the island was deposited on the nearby reefs, and a large swath of mangroves was destroyed.
The people of Iboih Village will create a 35-acre permanent no-take mangrove forest reserve.
With the assistance of Aceh Coral Conservation, Seacology will provide funding to replant 14,400 mangrove seedlings and clean up the debris that is suffocating the reefs and remaining mangrove forest.
