Get Involved

Now that you’ve seen the work that MAP is doing all over the world, you’re probably wondering ‘What can I do to save the mangroves?’ It may seem like a far-away problem, but your support is needed now! MAP depends on volunteer support and your involvement in our projects. Here are some suggested ways for you to get involved in the works of Mangrove Action Project.

Good Options for Children, Students, Teachers and Consumers:

Good Options for Individuals or Organizations

All of the above options are great for individuals, but organizations can also contribute to many of the same options. These include Joining MAP, Donating to MAP, going on a company-sponsored ECO-tour, buying MAP calendars for the office, or contributing older office supplies, just as a few examples.
