Mangrove restoration is a major global initiative.
Mangrove forests are essential to reduce the effects of flooding, tsunami's and soil erosion while restoring marine biodiversity.
In the last 3 decades, Indonesia has lost over 40% of its mangrove forests, affecting not only the environment and the species that rely on them but also the communities that depend on this ecosystem for survival.
The Biak Island project creates a healthy community of people by giving them jobs to restore their local mangrove forest. Which also sequesters CO2 and protects ocean health.
Each mangrove tree planted sequesters approximately 680 lbs of C02 over its lifetime.
Eden Restoration Projects
SeaTrees has partnered with the Eden Reforestation Projects to fund local villagers on Biak Island in their effort to restore, replant, and protect the area’s unique and vital forest systems.
