Mangroves for Community and Climate

Mangroves — nature’s thin green line between land and sea—store three to four times more carbon per hectare than tropical forests, and they protect coastal communities from storm surges. WWF will increase conservation and restoration of one million hectares of mangroves through a combination of strengthening the protection and management of standing mangroves and restoring lost and degraded areas in Colombia, Fiji, Madagascar, and Mexico. We will work with local communities to help build their resilience to the impacts of climate change, improving livelihoods.
