Asia International Auctioneers, Inc. (AIA) National Greening Program: Mangrove Planting Activity



As part of AIA Foundation’s biodiversity conservation and reforestation programs, the company planted 3,000 mangrove seedlings at Pilar, Bataan last December 14, 2018 and 600 seedlings at the Subic Bay Freeport Zone on December 18, 2018.
The mangrove seedlings directly planted on the coastline will serve as a barrier against torrential storms, provide a natural habitat for different species, protect local farm lands from sea water intrusion, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, helping fight climate change.
Since 2015, AIA has been working in collaboration with DENR and the SBMA Ecology Center in maintaining various mangrove forests through clean up and restoration, nursery establishment, donation of nursery materials and equipment, seed collection, propagation, and mangroves monitoring.

AIA undertook this long-term mangrove conservation project to help bring about increased coastal protection and lessen the negative effects of climate change. Moving forward, AIA is determined to continuously maintain and ensure the sustainability of mangrove forests in our communities, as well as implement more reforestation projects in line with its eco-initiatives in preserving and protecting the environment.
