It’s International Day of the Conservation of the Mangrove Ecosystem, and we continue to advocate for mangrove conservation. They continue to reduce in coverage, and this is a big problem roaming.
I was lucky again to join one of my favorite organizations, Blue Earth Organization, in a mangrove planting on the 24th of July 2021. We also had had groups, it’s getting bigger, and more people are thrilled with mangrove planting.
Sadly, the mangrove cover continues to shrink. The planting and growing of mangroves continue to try to fill that gap left by overexploitation, but more needs to happen.
Joining hands by different groups gives hope to increase in growth of mangroves and awareness creation. This will go a long way, We need more people in ensuring that mangrove conservation is taken seriously.
“If there are no mangrove forests, then the sea will have no meaning. It is like having a tree with no roots, for the mangroves are the roots of the sea.”
