Since mid-2019 we have been planting more mangroves to bind CO2. 1,.45 million mangroves have already been planted in the Gulf of Davao by Mama Earth, including the 55,000 mangroves that we planted in Mati in late 2019 / early 2020. Here is a small video:
We are still very active in Mati, Davao Oriental, where we are currently preparing a large mangrove project. The preparatory work is almost complete. Five foresters measure properties that have been released to us by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR).
We are trying to bundle 120 hectares into a nature conservation park and have made pretty good progress. Do not be squeamish to donate mangroves. You can get 60 mangroves for 20 Euro.

The plantations are documented by the Maritim College in Mati under the direction of Dr. Lea AngSinco-Jiminec.
