Mangroves provide important ecosystem services such as habitats, shoreline stabilization, and protection of coastal communities from tidal surges and natural disasters. Over the past 50 years, more than 25% of the world's mangroves worldwide have been lost due to natural disasters, pollution, and urban development. The Piñones area in Puerto Rico hosts 22% of all mangrove forests on the island. Our team worked with La Corporación Piñones Se Integra (COPI) on their Community-Based Mangrove Management (CBMM) reforestation program to understand the importance of mangroves and the threats they face. We also worked with LimPiaR to develop four participatory games and a mangrove wave tank as part of an Environmental Learning Outside of the Classroom (ELOC) educational portfolio.
