In Mamy's family, they are fishers from generation to generation. 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.
 
Fishing in mangroves is his main activity. To prevent it from being threatened by the effects of climate change, on the west coast of Madagascar where he lives, he had decided to reforest the mangroves around his village. Reforestation is a sustainable solution against the clearing and exploitation of the mangrove for construction and cooking.
 
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.
