6,000 mangrove trees planted in Fiji
Mangrove restoration continued this month in Fiji’s Qumusea district, as schoolkids chipped in to help plant 6,000 new trees.
These mangroves will help prevent erosion, which can hurt nearby coral reefs, and provide protection from major storm surges.
But 6,000 trees is just the start: the plan is to plant a total 50,000 new mangrove trees over the next 20 years.
In exchange for mangrove restoration and preservation, we provided funds for a new kindergarten classroom.
