How can we help reduce rising global temperatures, avoid a global food shortage, or protect the world’s biodiversity? We’re in the middle of climate and ecological crises, and these are the sorts of questions we need to answer.

Luckily, mangroves are here to help!

While they cover only 0.1% of the earth’s land surface, mangroves are also one of our planet’s most powerful tools to help solve environmental emergencies – from climate change to replenishing our oceans. But with over half of global mangrove forests already gone, mangroves need our help too.

We want as many people to know as possible – that’s why we’ve created this #MangrovesMatter campaign. And we need your help to share it and raise awareness, and to help support our locally led mangrove initiatives.
