Community Activists

Mangrove Action Project Needs You!

Explore our web site to learn why mangroves are important for those communities where you work for positive change.

Understand the connection between mangroves and urgent issues such as climate change, global warming, and sea level rise.

Almost 50% of the world’s human population lives in coastal regions, those most readily affected by climate change. With expected sea level rise and more frequent and violent hurricanes and storm surges, large-scale population displacement and societal disruptions are likely to occur.

Community activists must begin to formulate action plans that can effectively deal with hitherto unknown disasters involving massive numbers of coastal residents who may soon become environmental refugees, especially those communities situated on low lying coasts.

Learn about these issues by exploring our website and work with MAP to seek viable, sustainable solutions.
