Conservation benefit: Post-tsunami cleanup of the mangrove areas and inshore reef, and replanting

Community benefit: Water tanks for families moving inland

After a tsunami caused severe damage in Samoa in 2009, some villages were forced to relocate away from the shore as well as to clean up debris in mangrove areas and inshore reef. Seacology funded clean-up efforts as well as some replanting and the purchase of water tanks for families moving inland.
