Abstract

Illegal sand mining is carried out causing bad environmental problems. There needs to be a solution to solve the problem of illegal sand mining. The purpose of this study is to describe the impact of illegal sand mining in Merauke and the role of local wisdom to prevent illegal mining. This research is descriptive qualitative research. The place of research is Ndalir beach, the beach where sand mining occurs, and also Tomer village as one of the villages affected by illegal sand mining. Data was collected by direct observation and also in-depth interviews with several communities. The data obtained is that illegal sand mining provides benefits to the customary landowners of the sand village and also provides income to the sand miners. The negative impact of illegal mining is that it causes damage to mangrove forests resulting in abrasion, rising seawater to roads and homes, damage to roads and bridges. The solution is to adopt the local wisdom of the Kanum tribe, to prevent illegal sand mining.
