Climate Change: Mangrove Restoration & Planting

Project Report | Mar 8, 2023
Decreasing carbon emissions

By Shayle Havemann | Project leader

Introduction 

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..

Report 

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
