Mangroves used to be thought of as “useless, mosquito infested swamps” without value. Now mangroves are seen as essential in combating climate change and consequent sea level rise. Mangroves are being lauded as vital nurseries for marine life, important habitat for millions of migratory birds, and essential buffers against erosion, storm waves and hurricanes.

Alfredo Quarto is the Executive Director and Co-Founder of the Mangrove Action Project.

Presented at Restoring Oceans, Restoring Climate: Facing Fire & Ice, Food & Water, Flood & Drought conference at Harvard University on November 18-20, 2016
