Today, we ask people to join us to plant mangroves, but only a few are interested. Later, we will feel the impact of beach abrasion and sun burns on our daily lives. Our ocean and coasts provide a natural way of reducing the impact of greenhouse gases on our atmosphere, through sequestration (or taking in) of this carbon SDGs 13.This can be through the planting of mangroves, sea grasses, salt marshes along our coastline, and all these act as carbon sink. This coastal systems sequester or take in these carbon dioxide at a much faster rate, and can continue to do so for millions of years.

Most of the carbon (Blue Carbon) taken up by these ecosystems is stored below ground where we can't see it, but it is still there. The carbon found in coastal soil is often millions of years old!

When these systems are damaged, an enormous amount of carbon is emitted back into the atmosphere, where it can then contribute to climate change. So protecting and restoring coastal habitats is a good way to reduce climate change and increase bluecarbon resource. When we protect the carbon in coastal systems, we protect healthy coastal environments that provide many other benefits to people, such as recreational opportunities, storm protection, and nursery habitat for commercial and recreational fisheries.SDGs 2, 14.

Together we can save our mangroves!
