Recovering the salt forest

By Luis Roberto Quintanilla Guerra | project leader

The Barra de Santiago mangrove is an important food source for fish, it is a spawning area, an area of development and growth and a migratory route on which the existence of fish inside and outside the wetland depends. This wetland is home to around 75% of the marine species of coastal fauna with commercial importance in El Salvador (FRBR, 2013). Regarding the analysis of the potential economic valuation of mangroves, they indicate that the environmental services they offer are far superior to any productive activity that substitutes them. In El Salvador, it is estimated that mangroves have a potential economic value of US$ 22,500 per hectare. per year (MARN 2013)

One of the first steps in the restoration issue is to recover water functioning. We do this through the waterways which bring humidity to dry areas and drain areas with high levels of flooding.

Planting mangrove plants helps to recover faster the forest cover which has been lost in our site.

With this project, temporary jobs are being generated in the community of Barra de Santiago, hiring around 25 people from the community.
