Why plant mangrove trees?
Healthy mangroves can provide sustainable livelihoods for coastal communities and reduce their vulnerability to natural events such as hurricanes and storm surges. Mangroves also provide a number of other benefits to the world at large – they are arguably the most efficient carbon sequestration technology than any other forest type! The trees form deep roots underground that solidify the soil and end up storing close to 75% of the carbon there. 🌳
