Restoring mangroves with the help of drones

In partnership with Worldview International Foundation and Worldview Impact Foundation, BioCarbon Engineering has launched a project to restore and regenerate the degraded mangrove ecosystems in Myanmar in order to protect the lives of highly vulnerable communities. Mangrove forests are the vital foundation for a complex marine food web, sustaining not only fisheries but many forms of bird and other wildlife. The project has been chosen as a winner of a Bridge Builder challenge on OpenIDEO and is supported by the GHR Foundation. The first phase of the project included mapping of the areas, planting mangrove trees, meeting local communities and designing an integrated plan for ecosystem restoration.
