Coastal erosion and sedimentation often occur due to the impact of development in coastal areas. One of the reason is less or no attention to the function of mangrove ecosystems. This study was conducted in Indah Kapuk Beach, North Jakarta, Indonesia with 5.06 km length of coastal, which was divided into two regions, namely A (West) and B (East). Primary data was collected using transect-squares and spot-check methods to determine the existing condition of mangrove vegetation. Condition of mangrove has various densities ranging from 13-509 m. In region A, mangrove thickness was “small” in mangrove average of 40 m and the inland activities were aquacultural pond. Mangroves in region B were “large” 400 m average and many development activities were carried out in this area. Density of mangroves in the region A was “sparse” (<1000 trees ha-1) and that in region B was “fair” (1000-1200 trees ha-1) and “very dense” (>1,500 trees ha-1). The mangrove density of each region influenced less significantly on the development activities. The biggest influence in maintaining the stability of the beach was the thickness of mangroves growing on the seashore. The correlations were as; when the mangrove density was “sparse”, the mangrove thickness was “small”, otherwise when the mangrove density was “very dense”, the mangrove thickness was “large”. Rehabilitation was done in two areas, namely region A which was planted mangroves in about 200-300 m thickness and region B which was planted mangroves in about 400-600 m thickness. It is concluded that the conservation of the coast can be successful when the ecological systems of mangrove work entirely Keywords: Ecology of mangrove, coastal conservation, species density, mangrove thickness
