Through [MANG's] Buy One, Plant One® initiative [they're] working to replant and restore mangrove ecosystems not just in Florida but across the globe.

Worldwide, there are 4 main threats to mangroves which include coastal development, shrimp aquaculture, charcoal farming, and natural disasters.

Today we’re taking a closer look at each and learning what we can do about it.

“Mangroves are magical forests where we discover nature’s secrets. They straddle the connection between land and sea and nature and humans. Mangrove forests nurture our estuaries and fuel our nature-based economies.”
– Anne Birch / Marine Conservation Manager, TNC Florida
