Long-Term Impact

This reforestation of 20,000 mangrove plants will reconstitute and improve the vegetation cover of southern Benin in the formerly destroyed mangroves, will reduce CO2 in the air by 20%. This project will restore the complex ecosystem aspect of the mangrove ecosystem, home to a variety of interdependent biodiversity, habitat and food source essential for plants and animals, fish, birds, molluscs, crustaceans and other species Invertebrates
