The park focuses on mangrove conservation and its surrounding, exploring local scale economic enterprises, conservation of natural resources and cultural values, as well as quality of life improvement as a direct impact to the program.
The program was started in  2013 and has been planned to be realized until 2018. The initial program conducted rehabilitation of 10,000 mangrove combined with cultivation and nursery of Sea Pines and Californian Papaya.
