In one of the most scenic and remote corners of Indonesia's vast archipelago a mangrove rehabilitation programme is under way.

The Mangrove Action Project is working in remote coastal villages, like Tanakeke in South Sulawesi, to restore some of the 70 per cent of its mangrove forests that have been destroyed by pollution and logging to make way for commercial fish ponds.

This is no photo opportunity but an ecological approach that looks at the root causes of mangrove habitat destruction and works to reverse the process in order to allow for natural regrowth.

Spade in hand, Yaara Bou Melhem will accompany the team of international and local workers who are bringing back South Sulawesi's mangroves.
