Planting hope, one mangrove at a time.
Mangroves are tropical plants that form a barrier between the land and the water. They cannot grow everywhere, because they are adapted to loose, wet soils, salt water and being periodically submerged by tides.
What are mangroves?
A mangrove is an important piece of the ecosystem that offers much more than we can imagine. From being a great habitat for wildlife species, being a great protection for coasts, and bringing an economical added value to the local population, it is also one of the greatest sources of carbon sequestration.
However, the strength, attractiveness and durability of some mangrove species and the limited economic activities among local community tracts have led to the massive exploitation of mangroves.
The main goal of the mangrove restoration projects is to restore nature and wildlife. Additionally, we also focus a lot on involving the local people restoring water reserves and pollinators.
