Climate Change: Mangrove Restoration & Planting

Hello Friends and Family of the Earth,

It's been rather quiet last quarter as donations were a little low for us so we only managed to fund 2 planting sessions. As we had time on our hands with not much cash in the bank we decided to run some local community fundraisers in a number of our communities and while raising awareness we raised and extra $300 which was amazing for the communities already struggling. 

We are looking forward to planting again in America, Thailand and Africa over the coming months and our team are working hard on a carbon offsetting project for us, which we are very excited about. 

For now here are some fun and important facts about Mangroves....

  • Mangroves Are Some of the Most Important Carbon Sinks on the Planet. ...
  • Mangroves Act As Coastal Defence Against Floods and Tsunami. ...
  • Mangroves Can Help Mitigate Coral Bleaching. ...
  • Mangroves are Found in Salty Water. ...
  • Indonesia Boasts the Largest Ecosystem of Mangroves in the World

Our mission is to have large mangrove systems in every continent around the world to help us with our huge overwhelming fight against climate change.

That's us, we thank you for your support and if you can't wait for the next update get in touch or follow action change on social media for the latest events and updates live from our project. 

Thank you for being you!

Mangroves can be up to 10 times more efficient that terrestrial ecosystems at absorbing carbon long term, making the critical to our fight against climate change. However in Africa they continue to cut them down to make way for tourists, Thailand, Mexico and Indonesia they cut them down to make shrimp pens and in Florida they have few..


Working together and engaging the community to help plant these trees we not only educate the community on the issue we are restoring and replacing mangrove forests and these trees can absorb more carbon than any other and they are resilient living in salt water, they offer the home to over 48 different type of birds and the roots in the water provide habitat for much marine life. They also protect us as they act as a barrier against rising sea levels and erosion of shorelines.

Please remember the little by little campaign in April where if you donate up to $50, GlobalGiving will match it at 50%.

Thank you for your support
