Date : 26th of July

International Day for the Conservation of the Mangrove Ecosystem

Mangroves are crucial ecosystems that straddle land and sea, providing invaluable benefits to both marine and terrestrial environments. On the occasion of the International Day for the Conservation of the Mangrove Ecosystem, Shillim Institute is dedicated to raising awareness about the importance of mangroves and the urgent need for their conservation.

Mangroves act as natural buffers against storms and tsunamis, protecting coastal communities from natural disasters. They serve as nurseries for fish and other marine species, contributing significantly to biodiversity. Moreover, these ecosystems play a vital role in carbon sequestration, helping mitigate climate change impacts.

Join us on 26th July as we delve into the significance of mangroves through insightful webinars, interactive discussions with experts, and virtual tours of mangrove habitats. Together, let's explore strategies for sustainable management and conservation efforts to ensure the longevity of these critical ecosystems for future generations.
