Mangroves in Mati
Our mangrove reforestation in Mati with Boris Herrmann are approaching the first quarter of a million. There is still a long way to go, but small steps can also lead to the goal. We are grateful that we are supported from many quarters, whether it is the governor or the mayor, or the planters and fishermen, everyone can see that we are doing serious reforestation to help the people.
The Mama Earth Foundation always has one goal: To live with and from trees. If we don‘t give people an income, they won‘t respect nature and never cultivate it sustainably. The Malizia Mangrove Park aims to help nature, but also people.
Regardless of whether you are harvesting more fish and mussels or growing more nipa palms for making roof coverings, baskets and mats. We are also working on an action to fish the plastic from the sea and start teaching the fishermen not to concentrate on fishing, but to grow algae for a growing market in the sea. That would have a double effect: algae are food for the fish, which would allow the populations to grow and at the same time protect the stocks because the fishermen would not have to overfishing their income.
