Replant mangroves for future generations

Posted on 16 May 2018

In the west of Madagascar, where the mangroves of Manambolo Tsiribihina are located, nearly 350 ha of mangroves have been planted during the last six years.
Mamy's family have been fisherman for generations. With a monthly income of 300,000 Ariary (nearly 80 euros) per month, equivalent to almost twice the average Malagasy salary, he earns a good living.
 
Most of his fishing takes place in mangroves. In order to protect it from the effects of climate change, he decided to replant mangroves around his village, on the west coast of Madagascar. Reforestation is a sustainable solution to the clearing and explotiation of mangroves for construction and cooking. 
 
Fortuantely, Mamy is not alone in his efforts. In the west of Madagascar, where the mangroves of Manambolo Tsiribihina are located (a WWF intervention landscape) nearly 350 ha of mangroves have been planted during the last six years.
