Inspiring the next generation of mangrove advocates

Why education?

If we want mangroves to be preserved for generations to come, education is the key. Today’s children must learn about the immense ecological value of these ecosystems and the many crucial services they provide. Still, restoration projects often neglect the educational aspect. Others try sharing dry facts or text-heavy lessons, which do little to build a child’s deep and long-lasting connection with their environment.

That’s where the Coastal Education Program comes in. Our practical, comprehensive, and science-based program is designed from the ground up to inspire youth of all ages to appreciate and conserve their local mangroves.
