Mangrove Action Project
November 10, 2012

MAP is a unique non-profit in its focus on human-environment interactions, a very geographical concept that embodies social justice issues in its environmental agenda. It has a global reach and is well-respected by the grassroots organizations with which it interacts. In addition to maintaining a world-wide network of mangrove non-profits through its newsletter, MAP produces a charming and lovely calendar every year of children's art related to mangroves. While it is engaged with climate change, MAP does not compromise its belief in ecological restoration rather than photogenic 'quick fixes' unfortunately too common. As such, it has been influential in promoting working with nature, not against it, in the international policy arena. It is still far too small an organization for the gargantuan task of keeping mangroves functional world-wide, but engages others, especially K-12, in the task through its enormously sought-after Education Curriculum.
