To empower families and businesses to protect our future through funding mangrove forestry.
Mangroves are truly miracles of nature. They form GREEN SHIELDS, protecting coastal communities from rising seas, storms, and even tsunamis. Their roots form a living lattice for coastal food webs and provide breeding grounds for baby fish and crustaceans and protection for a wealth of flora, fauna, and birdlife. Their roots filter the water, reducing pollution, lowering salinity, and helping flora and fauna to thrive. As the forests grow, they prevent erosion and help reclaim land from the sea by capturing sediment from run-off to form new earth. In addition, mangroves form GREEN LUNGS, producing massive amounts of oxygen and sequestering ten times more carbon than temperate forests
