Building Roots

Mangrove

What this gift will do

In the Philippines, mangroves are the best shield against climate change. They are nature's best way of combatting global warming, as they are crucial in capturing and storing carbon away from the atmosphere, where it would otherwise accumulate. Your donation can help plant mangroves where the original 500,000 hectares has whittled down to 100,000 hectares or less, due to coastal development, land conversion, and reclamation.
