M Rosnan Osman, ecoCare Volunteer

The tsunami which devastated several Asian countries in 2004 made Rosnan, a staff member of PETRONAS in Kerteh, realise the importance of mangroves. They are not just the protector of the coasts; they also play an integral role in biodiversity and the marine food chain, besides their influence on the socio-economy of local fishermen.

As a result of the initiatives taken by ecoCare, the local community is beginning to grasp the significance of environmental care and coastal ecology.
