Mangroves Education Program

3 June @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am EDT

OceanBiome would conduct a Magroves Education program for Kalkuda zone students in coordination with the MJF Foundation to represent World Ocean Day. We’ll be educating the importance of mangroves and their relevance to marine ecology to the students with some interactive sessions.

Mangroves are tropical trees that grow in situations that most wood couldn’t stand – salty coastal seas and the ever-changing tide. Mangrove forests are important figures in fighting against climate change because of their potential to store large amounts of carbon, yet they are under attack worldwide. Mangroves are very productive and dynamic, in contrast to most marginal habitats.

OceanBiome is a community of next-generation ocean advocates with a mission to tackle the most pressing challenges of marine ecosystems by co-creating open innovations and ocean literacy.
