Mangrove Action Project
September 24, 2012

I have served the Mangrove Action Project as an advisor and colleague for twenty years, since MAP was founded. I am a professor of rural sociology with nearly 40 years of experience in coastal fishing and aquaculture in Asia and Latin America. To me, MAP plays an essential role in drawing attention to the issues faced by coastal residents in the tropics, and does so by highlighting the intimate relationship between people and mangrove around the world. Other groups which share these concerns have come and gone, but MAP has been in the field for two decades. By this I mean that MAP has a presence, works with people and mangroves, engages people in restoration and appreciation. Their calendars featuring children's art on mangrove themes are simultaneously beautiful and poignant. MAP is an essential clearinghouse for information, publishing weekly MAP News from around the world. I am proud to support MAP and believe MAP is deserving of recognition as a Great Non-Profit.
