We've teamed with WILDCOAST to help the worthy nonprofit tell the world about their vital work conserving coastal and marine systems to address climate change through natural solutions. One story we will be telling is about Blue Carbon. Heard of it yet? You will soon enough! Simply put, blue carbon is carbon that’s captured and stored in coastal and marine ecosystems. This is especially important since, in the past 100 years, human activity has released an excess of carbon that causes climate change. Luckily, our coastal ecosystems are incredibly efficient at removing harmful amounts of carbon from the atmosphere and can store it for thousands of years. Blue carbon ecosystems like mangroves, sea grasses, and tidal marshes are among the most efficient carbon sinks on the planet.
WILDCOAST has launched the One Million Mangroves Initiative, and it only costs $1 to plant one mangrove sapling to help restore our healthy climate. Donate here.
