The event was officially opened by the District Officer of Kuala Selangor on 23 Oct and later closed by YB Dr. Dzulkefly Ahmad, the Member of Parliament for Kuala Selangor on Sunday, 24 Oct. He requested for MNS to produce a poster similar to the one produced by MNS Johor for Panti Bird Sanctuary.

The mangrove tree planting was interesting with many, unfamiliar with mud, screaming as they wove their way into the planting zone.
The berembang trees (Sonneratia caseolaris), where the fireflies roosted were relatively small (around 3 m in height). The berembang trees during my youth in Sg. Kemasin, Bachok, Kelantan were relatively tall (6 m high).
