Scientific evidence claim that mangroves are nature’s weapons against climate change. A buffer zone between the land & the sea, they:

  • Protect the land from erosion
  • Protect the coast from cyclones & storm surges
  • Soak up excess CO2

And are said to be one of nature’s best carbon sinks!

Apart from this they also serve as a haven for corals and marine diversity. A typical mangrove also has 182 tonnes of biomass above ground per hectare. Scientists claim that mangrove restoration is a conservation tool promoting ecosystems, community empowerment, climate change adaptation, carbon storage, fisheries enhancement.

A go-to for O2!
