Mangrove Conservation Application Based on Site Selection Using PlanetScope Imagery in Pedaleman Village, Tanara District, Serang
Mangrove conservation in Indonesia has progressed from planning, and implementation to monitoring, supported by the efforts of the government and non-governmental groups. Mangrove rehabilitation and conservation is an effort to restore the function of degraded mangrove forests and increase the potential for suitable land to be planted with mangroves. Mangrove rehabilitation efforts in Pedaleman Village, Tanara Sub-district, have created a significant mangrove ecosystem in the surrounding area, including the arrangement and restriction of conservation areas with fishpond business areas. Rehabilitation efforts can be realized by selecting suitable site of mangrove planting locations as part of conservation planning. Site selection by visual interpretation method using remote sensing imagery from Planetscope satellite has provided a synaptic overview of land use in the coastal and estuary area of Pedaleman Village. This site selection results in potential mangrove planting areas and non-potential areas. More than 50% of the coastal area of Pedaleman Village is considered conducive for mangrove seedling planting planning. Of this percentage, there are some land uses of ponds and vacant land, most of which can be converted into part of the mangrove forest area.
