[Extract] Mangroves have lost one of their most ardent and passionate advocates. Dr. Ong Jin Eong, formerly of the Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) in Penang, passed away at his home on August 5, 2021. Dr. Ong was not only a key figure in Asian mangrove research, management and conservation, his work also attracted significant global recognition. In addition to his research on mangroves and coastal marine ecosystems and his strong advocacy for their conservation, he was responsible for training several thousand students in ecology and coastal management during an academic career spanning three decades.
