MANGROVE REGENERATION AND CLEANUPS

Check out our latest plantings.  It's working--halting climate change one root at a time!

 

Florida has the longest coastline on the mainland United States. The latest IPCC 2022 Report identifies Florida as an area facing the worst affects of climate change.  Miami-Dade County, with more than 2.7 million residents and $246 billion in real estate bordered by beautiful Biscayne Bay, faces the gravest risk.  With the third largest school district in the United States, and 75% of our residents living in low-lying coastal areas, we have more students at risk than anywhere else in the United States.  But there are natural solutions available now, like regenerating mangroves, which absorb carbon, provide a breeding ground for fish, and protect against coastal erosion. South Florida is undertaking massive efforts, both city-wide and grass roots, to restore our coastlines and mitigate against climate change.  Join us to restore, regenerate, and replant. Scale it up.

Interesting fact:  Mangroves store more carbon per unit area than any other ecosystem on Earth. Mangrove forests cover just .01 percent of the planet's surface but store 10 times more carbon then terrestrial forests. 

I'm researching the feasibility of  doubling plantings by splicing   mangrove seedlings in half, sealing with  biodegradable planting wax, and planting. Scaling it up.  Check it out. It's working!
