Mangrove Protection

Worldwide over half of the mangroves were lost in the past decades due to mainly human activities. Loss of mangroves also lead to re-emission of the carbon captured in the mangrove forests for millennia and decline in the associated biodiversity. Blue Carbon Tanzania (BCT) works with coastal communities living in the vicinity of the mangrove ecosystems, raise awareness about the protection of mangroves and work to find solutions to enhancing sustainability and long-term protection of mangrove ecosystems.
