Replanting Mangroves and coral in Solomon Islands

Coastal communities in Malaita, Solomon Islands are leading training workshops to teach participants how to replant mangroves and corals. These critical ecosystems provide breeding grounds and habitats for marine fish and other aquatic animals that support the livelihoods of thousands of subsistence fishers and their families.

However, they are also a source of building materials, firewood and lime, and are under threat from overharvesting. Replanting mangrove forests and replenishing coral reefs will help to secure these natural resources and their vast benefits in to the future.
