Mangrove forests are one of the most valuable ecosystems in the world, found along tropical and subtropical coastlines, where the land and the waters meet.
These prosperous and delicate ecosystems are home to a great variety of creatures, from plankton to migratory birds. Just 30% of the world’s mangroves still exist today, as a shocking 70% has been wiped out by intensive shrimp farming. Now coastal communities are joining forces to report illegal occupations, plant mangroves in every abandoned spot and provide training to the communities so they can communicate the enormous importance of mangroves to visitors.
