Aiding populations to safeguard coastline Livelihoods and restoring fish reserves is crucial to our approach.
Understanding the Coral Reefs and Mangrove forests
Almost half of the world’s human inhabitants live in shoreline areas and connected coastal expansion has substantially damaged or devastated many coastal environments. Increasing human populations and increasing sea levels only further restrict the availability of environment that coastal species depend on.
Where native land meets a ocean is often a place of stunning biodiversity and environmental magnificence. The coastal zone makes up only 10% of the environment but is home to over 90% of all aquatic species.
Coral reefs and mangrove forests provide people and animal life with numerous advantages, but we’ve lost half of these environments, and stand to lose even more from the difficulties brought on by human expansion and climate change.
American Geography and Science Institute is working toward the objective of increasing the level of mangrove containment by 30% by the year 2040.
Mangrove environments are carefully linked to coral reefs, and AGSI is concentrating on protecting the reefs that are vital to bordering populations and have the best chance of surviving a warmer, more acidic ocean. From Coastal Amazon to the Coral Tropics in Bangladesh. AGSI is expanding scientific knowledge of coral reefs and establishing the tools that back community-led conservation, which includes maritime endangered regions.
AGSI -Creating Green Markets for Coastal Populations
AGSI operates with affiliates and the private sector to create and execute a valid Green Market to guarantee that the marine market promotes to affluence and the strength of coastal populations, now and into the future.
