100% of profits fund our mission to protect and restore coastal ecosystems - turning the tide on climate change.
With your support ($2 per tree planted) - we work with our project partnersWILDCOASTto plant 40,000 mangrove trees across 25 acres of mangrove habitat with the help of the local community members in the El Datil region of Laguna San Ignacio, Baja, Mexico.
This project provides living-wage employment and training opportunities for the local community, empowers gender equity, protects the area from increased climate change impacts, and safeguards critical habitats for several vulnerable species. At the heart of this project is a local group of women, “Mujeres de El Dátil,” who were trained in 2019 by WILDCOAST on mangroves environmental services, seedlings collection and planting techniques, as well as monitoring and maintenance of restored sites.
Every mangrove you help to plant:
Provides living-wage employment to the local community.
Improves the livelihoods of 250+ inhabitants of El Dátil.
Trains 11+ women in project management and monitoring.
Protects local areas and communities from sea-level rise and increased storm surges.
Safeguards critical gray whale nursery habitat.
