Ecological rehabilitation of Lac Bonaire by wise management of water and sediments

    Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional

    Abstract

    Lac Bonaire is confronted with a gradually decreasing open water area because mangrove is occupying this area. At the same time mangrove growth deteriorates at the back of the mangrove belt, the area of hyper saline flats gradually increases and sediment is deposited in the bay area. During a field visit, the most prominent problems are identified and concrete management actions are proposed for the ecological rehabilitation of Lac Bonaire.
