1 FOR 1 | The Mangrove Project
Located on the northern coast of Papua, Indonesia is a spectacular island called Biak, where we work with our partner, SeaTrees to plant thousands of Mangrove trees. These actions regenerate the ecosystems within these local communities and remove 4x the carbon out of the atmosphere than any other tree species.
Problem: Poverty at the village level results in deforestation and further cycles of impoverishment.
Solution: Employ village residents to restore ecosystems and build resilient, sustainable communities.
Impact: Jobs enable people to provide food, healthcare and education to their families. Government agreements ensure permanent local control of restoration sites. Healthy mangrove forests sequester CO2 and support local marine ecosystems.
Funding: This project wouldn't exist without the financial support of forward-thinking Individuals like you and brands like PARKIT.
