Sabandar Mangrove Park is a 6-acre mangrove forest and habitat to various flora and fauna. The main purpose of the park is to conserve and raise awareness on the mangrove’s ecosystem. A wooden boardwalk was constructed using only manual labour in order to decrease carbon footprint during the construction phase. The wooden boardwalk provides both a popular recreational walk and a natural ecological attraction for visitors. The boardwalk provides a close up view of the mangrove colony and a variety of associated flora and fauna. Together, these support a variety of birds and marine life that can be seen in this area. Informative on-site signage will provide visitors with an insight into the ecosystem of the mangrove system.
At present, we have identified 3 main species of mangrove which are Bakau minyak (Rizophora apiculata), Bakau kurap (Rizophora mucronata) and Berus putih (Bruguiera cylindrica). Other plants that are dominant to the site are Sea Hibiscus tree (Hibiscus tilliaceus) and Piai Raya fern (Acrostichum aureum) and nipah palm (Nypa fructicans). The mangrove fauna community structure is made up of monitor lizards (Varanus salvator), smooth otters (Lutrogale perspicillata), mud lobsters (Thalassina anomala), mollusks and mudskippers (Periophthalmodon schlosseri).<< Sabandar BeachSabandar Leisure Rides >>
