Mangrove Conservation and Restoration, Southern Coastal Kenya

Mangrove forests are vital coastal ecosystems creating natural buffers and stabilising shoreline communities, providing nursing grounds for fish and sea creatures, and sequestering vast amounts of atmospheric carbon dioxide.

This project run by the┬áMikoko Pamoja Organisation (meaning “mangroves forever”) is a community-led mangrove conservation and restoration project in Gazi Bay, southern coastal Kenya.
