Mangrove Rehabilitation

Sazani researched the local area and have supported community engagement, raising awareness of the economic and environmental benefits of the mangrove forest for and with local people. For the local people, mangroves can help protect shorelines and support coastal ecosystems and on a global scale, mangroves trap carbon which could help with climate change. To help protect the mangroves from further destruction, Sazani worked on the main problem facing local people – the lack of food and income – and helped set up and train the community in using the mangroves as nurseries to farm crabs and sea cucumbers.
