Pakistan set new world plantation record

KARACHI 179775_78516258 - Amid frazzled news of terrorism in Pakistan and unrest in its financial capital Karachi, there is good news as Pakistan on Saturday set a new world record as around 300 volunteers planting 670,000 mangroves plants along the coastal belt of Thatta, Sindh.

 

Around 300 volunteers on Saturday made frantic efforts to plant over maximum number of mangroves along the coastal line in an effort to beat a world record earlier broken by India.

 

Plantation is carried out at Thatta’s coastal area of Kharo Chan. The massive campaign began at 6.20 am in Saturday morning.

 

The initiative was carried out with the support of the Asian Development Bank, Coastal Community Development and the Forest Department.

 

Earlier as well this record was held by Pakistan when in 2009 over 541,000 seedlings were planted in the same area. But unfortunately due to lack of proper care most of these plants were destroyed.
