Mangroves, A New Beginning


The sea has always been a part of life in Aceh, Indonesia. It is inevitable, for being surrounded by Malacca Strait in the north and Indian Ocean in the south and west, the water is omnipresent. The beaches, everywhere you look, are beautiful: white sands, shining blue water, and perfect spots to watch the sunset.

But on December 26, 2004, the beaches were washed away by the giant, devastating tsunami waves. Tons of debris covered these beautiful beaches and left them deserted for quite some time. The tragedy left a deep trauma in its wake: for years people were afraid to go to the beach. A decade on and the coastal ecosystem has begun to rejuvenate. Here, a newly planted mangrove is one sign of this tentative but courageous return.
