Save the Mangroves
Nakawe Project is proud to be partnering with MarVivo, a Blue Carbon Mangrove conservation project located on the Pacific coast of Baja California Sur, Mexico, consisting of 22,000 hectares of mangrove forest (the largest in Baja), 137,000 hectares of bay and 26,000 hectares of sand dunes.
MarVivo will work to eradicate deforestation and promote wildlife conservation while generating unique benefits for the local communities. This will be done by establishing a network of mangrove conservation sites throughout the Eastern Tropical Pacific Seascape (ETPS) by using the REDD+ model to provide sustainable funding through the sale of “blue carbon” credits over a 30-year period.
Proceeds from the sale of MarVivo’s REDD+ carbon credits will support projects in local communities designed to address poverty, one of the main drivers of deforestation, and create new economic opportunities in industries like ecotourism.
