Pertubuhan Sahabat Hutan Bakau Kampung Dato’ Hormat (PSHBKDH) was established to facilitate action in protecting and rehabilitating mangroves in the village area, in Sabak Bernam, Selangor. The members (from B40 category) generate side income through the establishment of a mangrove nursery and undertaking mangrove rehabilitation activities with the support from corporate partners and the state government.
