Mangrove restoration is an essential step in the campaign to protect and rehabilitate near-shore tropical habitats.
Coral reefs are critically interdependent with near-shore mangroves, and many coral restoration projects have failed because they failed to address mangrove loss. To be effective, restoration requires strategic planning, implementation, monitoring, and management. It involves renewing naturally established mangroves that have been lost or degraded and reclaiming their ecosystem function. Restoring these lost and degraded mangroves to their natural state is essential to tourism, conservation, and fisheries management in tropical ecosystems worldwide.
