Abstract: The rapid development of Asia Pacific region in the last decade had a significant impact on the environment and biodiversity. The land reclamation into forestry, agriculture, aquaculture, salt extraction, infrastructure and urban development are common practice by developing countries. Coastal wetlands such as Mangroves, Sea Grass Beds and Salt Marshes are being rapidly converted on large scale into other function around all over the world, leading to degradation on mangrove ecosystems. The degradation of mangrove areas appeared in Indonesia and China because of over-exploitation at a large scale. This alarming situation on mangrove ecosystem in Indonesia and China made these two countries to take serious actions. The degradation of mangrove ecosystems can be addressed through mangrove conservation, to restore the capacity of damaged mangrove ecosystem through appropriate conservation management strategies.
