Mangrove Action Project
The Mangrove Action Project is dedicated to reversing the degradation and loss of mangrove forest ecosystems worldwide. Its main goal is to promote the rights of traditional and indigenous coastal peoples, including fishers and farmers, to sustainably manage their coastal environs. At the same time MAP strives to use the formal education process to introduce mangrove ecology on a scientific and social level to students in their classrooms.
“If there are no mangroves, then the sea will have no meaning. It is like having a tree without roots, for the mangroves are the roots of the sea…”
Words of a Thai fisher from the Andaman Coast
We are raising funds for a particular method of mangrove restoration called Community-Based Ecological Mangrove Restoration (CBEMR), and ask you to sponsor us. Please take a few minutes to watch our video and share our page too.
Please take a look at our newest items available for purchase. All proceeds go to protect and restore the Earth’s mangrove forests and support sustainable coastal societies.
Primary school children from tropical and sub-tropical nations are invited to participate in MAP’s annual international contest, which is increasing in popularity every year since its first publication in 2002. Submissions are due no later than July 31, 2014. Winners will be published in the 2015 calendar.
