View the wonderful artworks from the Children’s Mangrove Art Contest 2021 

The Children’s Mangrove Calendar connects children from all corners of the Earth to mangrove forests, through an educational and creative competition. It is an opportunity for the younger generation to feel a connection with the natural world and to learn about the vital role mangroves play, to both communities, and our environment. A massive thank you to all organizations, teachers, students and families who took part this year. It’s great to see the huge appetite of young people looking to nature and mangroves for inspiration. It’s great to see the willingness of so many young people to take an interest in mangroves and nature in general, and to take part in the competition. 

We hope you enjoy viewing the images as much as we enjoyed receiving them!



This year we received 350 submissions, aged between 6 and 16, from 34 countries. For the first time, the competition was opened to include children from any country, rather than just mangrove nations. The artworks entered were incredibly stunning and expressive and have resulted in one of our most beautiful calendars to date. This year we’ve gone that little bit further with the calendar. Using soy-based inks, the calendars were printed on FSC-certified 100% recycled paper to produce an earth-friendly product.

Many thanks to all those who took part in this year’s activities! Join us in our mission to educate, enlighten and empower the youth of today across the globe so that mangroves, and our planet, have a sustainable future!
