Creating forested wetlands

An artist’s impression of the Penang South Reclamation’s proposed Island A that will be developed with eco-friendly features like mangrove forests to promote marine life and serve as an eco-tourism attraction.

THE Penang South Reclamation (PSR) development will include the planting of mangroves to create new forested wetlands in coastal areas around the state.

Penang Infrastructure Corporation (PIC) chief executive officer Datuk Seri Farizan Darus said mangrove planting would be part of the PSR Ecology Offset Programme (PEOM) designed to mitigate the project’s reclamation impact and create new habitats for marine life.
