My story

[p]Help needed! Mangroves are a critical forest ecosystem which help stabilize coastlines and reduce erosion with their intricate roots. Your help is critical to our mission. For every dollar, pound or euro donated, we will plant a mangrove tree just for you. [/p][p]Mangroves create the perfect habitat for many species of fish, crustaceans and reptiles. They act as a natural barrier against Tsunamis, we will be planting the trees in one of the worst affected areas hit by the devastating 2004 Tsunami. Conservation and restoration of mangrove forests also contribute significantly to climate change mitigation They can trap organic sediment and store significant amounts carbon underground. Today, less than half of mangrove forests remain extant due to unsustainable development such as shrimp aquaculture, oil extraction, poor tourism practices and urbanization.[/p][p]In order to help support the restoration of such valuable ecosystems, GVI Phang Nga has partnered with local communities to plant mangroves to protect biodiversity, promote sustainable practices, and provide alternative livelihoods for community members in areas such as shrimp farming and ecotourism.[/p][p]Want to make a difference this Christmas? Can’t think of what to buy? Why not buy a a young mangrove tree? A present that will last for ever, a present that will change lives, planted with love by a GVI volunteer. Donate a dollar, pound or Euro by the end of the year and we will get planting. We hope to plant 1500 mangroves ?before January 1st.? Help us restore habitats and communities in one of the most mangrove diverse regions of the world.[/p]
