Blue Carbon and the Magic of Mangroves

Friends of Juniper Hall’s March meeting – a fascinating exploration of the long-understood role played by mangrove forests in stabilising coastlines and providing nursery areas, and the role for which they are becoming increasingly important – that of storing carbon. Our speaker, FSC’s Simon Waller, related case studies from around the tropical world, documenting the concerning declines in these habitats from varied pressures, and some of the efforts to protect and restore them.
