Mangroves are known for their fantastic building properties. Unfortunately, they are being cut down and used at such a rate that once dense forests will be unable to recover.
LOC has planted and monitored over 230,000 mangrove seeds and seedlings, and has its own mangrove nursery on site. Often, planting efforts are done together with the local community to instil a sense of ownership and pride. Education about the importance of the mangrove ecosystem complements these restoration activities.
