Pronatura Sur A.C.’s work on conserving mangroves received a recent boost with funding from RICOH.
Over the next three years, Pronatura aims to restore 15 hectares of mangrove and provide economic benefits to local communities using this important habitat.
Pronatura Sur A.C. (BirdLife in Mexico) has been working with local communities on mangrove restoration in the Pacific coast of Oaxaca and Chiapas states for 15 years.
Project leader Marylin Bejarano says the areas could eventually be connected together. “That’s why our work is called the Mangrove and Climate Change Corridor Initiative.”
