The Mangrove Future

The EcoReef Initiative For A New Approach To Mangrove Conservation

EcoReefs serve as a protective barrier for mangroves, offering a multi-faceted defense system. They shield the shoreline from soil and sand encroachment that can occur during flooding or severe weather conditions. They also protect the water’s edge from the impact of human activities. Moreover, they safeguard the exposed sides of mangroves from both fresh and saltwater, allowing the nourishing brackish water to naturally seep in and sustain the plant life.
In addition to their protective role, EcoReefs are engineered to function as surrogate mangroves. This dual functionality enhances their effectiveness in preserving the delicate balance of these ecosystems.
The EcoReef Project is designed to make an immediate positive impact on the environment. It aims to safeguard aquatic habitats and fish breeding grounds, curb plastic pollution, and aid in controlling soil erosion.
The project adopts a unique approach by integrating various elements. It combines organic matter, rock and rubble, and heated plastics derived from waste materials like plastic bags, bottles, or sisal. These components are used as binding agents, creating a sustainable and environmentally friendly solution for mangrove conservation.
