Among the multiple objectives of the mangrove forest conservation project is the following one: to offer employment and professional experience to the community, focusing on young high school graduates from Mahahual.
The reason why we chose high school graduates to be part of our work team is to give them a job opportunity integrating environmental conservation. Today we presented the project to them, doing field work in the mangroves in order to explain the importance of the ecosystem in a practical and dynamic way.!
Walking in the mangroves.
Explaining to the high school graduates the ecosystem services the mangroves offer, while illustrating it directly in the forest.
Collecting soil in order to germinate mangroves for the future conservation program.
