Abraham Manggas: Rescuing sugar palms
The Jakarta Post
The threat of the disappearance of sugar palms in West Manggarai regency in Flores, as a result of unending exploitation without rejuvenation, prompted Abraham Manggas, 47, to cultivate sugar palm seedlings and replant the crop.
So far this year, he has replanted 3,500 sugar palm trees, locally known as raping, which are economically significant to the West Manggarai community.
