Involving the Community
The protection and conservation of the Flamingo Mangroves is in the interest of the Flamingo community. Education and outreach is necessary to conserve a communal resource. It is through this belief that we organized the first annual mangrove trash cleanup effort and presented our research and background on mangrove ecosystems to a local school.
