Why Mangroves?

 

Hurricane Resilience

Mangroves act as a natural buffer defending coastal communities from flooding by dissipating wave energy and storm surge.

 

Carbon Sequestration

Mangroves are up to five times more effective at sequestering atmospheric carbon than tropical rainforests.

 

Fish Nurseries

Mexico’s Pacific mangroves provide refuge for gray whales and migratory birds, feeding grounds for endangered sea turtles, and offer important nursery habitat for commercially valuable fisheries.
