Mangrove Ecosystem Restoration and Management

This module provides guidance for people interested in mangrove ecosystem conservation, restoration and management. It takes a holistic view, balancing the roles of the wide variety of goods and services provided by mangrove forests – from shellfish and charcoal to sediment trapping and the attenuation of storm surges. Mangroves occur on coastlines, but their influence often extends both inland and far out to sea.
