Human impact has resulted in the loss of 25% to 100% of all the mangrove forests worldwide. Their roots serve as a nursery for a variety of invertebrates and juvenile fish. Through education and ecological restoration activities, the OLC will empower people to protect and restore the mangrove forests in different locations locally (such as North Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Key Largo, Key West, Gulf Stream and Brevard County) and worldwide.
Our goal is to not only expand this program into other locations, but also provide the program’s participants with a newfound appreciation for the mangrove’s biodiversity and inhabitants, as well as leaving these individuals with a passion to protect these ecosystems now and in the future.
