WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA (AllAfrica.com) - The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) in collaboration with the Kombo-Foni Forestry Association (KOMFFORA) recently concluded a two-day symposium on the protection and preservation of mangrove, held in Bullinghat Village in the Foni Bondali District of West Coast Region.

The symposium was aimed at sensitising communities about their role in the protection and conservation of the mangrove ecosystems, and as a platform for stakeholders to discuss their roles and means of preserving one of the country's most valuable natural resources.

Delivering the keynote address, Honourable Abdoulie Bojang, the speaker of the National Assembly, pointed out the responsibility and critical role of communities in the preservation of the ecosystem.

Alhaji Bakary Badjie, the chief of Foni Bondali, expressed optimism that the training on participatory forest management will help to preserve the mangrove forest. He also expressed appreciation to the organisers for organising such a training on environmental management, and urged them to make the training annually.

Alhaji Saikou Janko, the president of KOMFFORA, reiterated the previous speakers' points and expressed delight at the large turnout of the people, as a support to the mangrove protection efforts. He also acknowledged the impact and successful implementation of the mangrove rehabilitation project in the Kombo and Foni regions in the year 2010.
