Mangrove Action Project (MAP) is a US-based nonprofit which collaborates with stakeholders at all levels to preserve, conserve, and restore our world’s mangrove forests.
By working with forest communities, research academics, forest and environment departments, policy makers, and international policy and funding groups, we encourage the preservation and conservation of existing mangroves, educate on how to restore degraded or unhealthy mangrove ecosystems, and encourage multiple generations to take an active interest in their local forests. Why do we do this? Because healthy mangroves can provide coastal communities (particularly the poorest) with a sustainable living and reduce their vulnerability to disasters from natural events such as hurricanes and storm surges. Mangroves also provide a host of other benefits to the world at large – including sequestering and storing more carbon than any other forest type per hectare.
