Abstract


Wonorejo Mangrove Ecotourism of Surabaya is one of the protected forest areas in Surabaya as mentioned in the Regional Regulation Number 3 of 2007 regarding with Surabaya Urban Spatial Planning. Ecotourism mangrove can be developed as an alternative tourism that has an added value both for the improvement of coastal communities’ local economic potential as well as for the introduction of ecosystems and biota diversity of coastal areas and oceans. This study inspects on the potential of mangrove ecotourism and its management efforts in a conservation zone based on the subtleties and status of ecosystem impairment. It is receded that the mangrove forest ecosystem is currently undergoing pressures that affect the shrinkage of mangrove area. Mangrove conservation can be carried by promoting conservation activities and community participation. To achieve these tasks, there are requirements to support from the government of Surabaya City in preparing the facilities, provide means and infrastructure, empower the surrounding community as well as what more important is to promote the region as an alternative tourist destination.
