Mangrove Action Project
Mangrove Action Project (MAP) is a US-based nonprofit which collaborates with stakeholders at all levels to preserve, conserve, and restore our world’s mangrove forests.
Witnessing firsthand the rapid devastation of the world’s mangrove forest wetlands and their associated coastal ecosystems, the founders of the Mangrove Action Project decided in 1992 that it was time to form a global network to save the mangroves.
We at Mangrove Action Project take a truly grassroots, bottom-up approach to mangrove conservation and restoration issues. Our approach involves and includes the voices of the global South, local communities, and their partner non-governmental organizations (NGOs).
MAP works through action, advocacy, and education to ensure that mangrove forests are healthy for current generations – as well as those to come.
