What is your wish for this project?

We would like to continue our two-year project which has harvested, grown, and planted 2000 red mangrove seedlings along both the Atlantic and Gulf coasts of Florida. We are restoring Florida mangrove forests that have been removed for coastal development or replaced by Australian Pine trees in South Florida. We also are planting additional seedlings in areas where red mangrove forests need reinforcement....read more

How did it go?

The final transplants will take place in August, but the seedlings are growing very well in a variety of locations throughout South Florida. Locations are secured in the Treasure Coast with the Friends of Spoil Islands and along the Gulf of Mexico coast of Florida.
