Mangrove forests are a critically important global resource. They provide habitat for wildlife, protect coastal areas from erosion, and deliver sustainable economic benefits for local communities in the form of timber, fish and tourism.
We conserve Mexican mangrove forests and support local communities with projects that provide economic benefits.
We worked with the Federal Government, National Forestry Commission (CONAFOR), and local communities to launch the mangrove conservation programme. The project is targeted towards conservation of 600 hectares of mangroves in Santuario, Mexico, which will help to maintain the balance of the marine ecosystem, as well as support the local communities.
We also conduct regular awareness and training programmes on the environmental importance of the mangroves and how to protect and conserve them.
