The Mangrove

swept us away

During our mission in Sumatra, our team fell in love with the mangrove ecosystem.  In this same place, we have witnessed, helplessly, the sad sight of deforestation, but we also witnessed the brave fight of the local associations who struggle against this disappearance.

Considering the gravity of this situation which keeps on getting worse, we have decided that it was time for us to act by ourselves, before it is too late. That is the reason why we created “Mangrove Generation”.

In order to preserve this vital ecosystem but with a poorly understood impact, we have gathered all the information related to mangroves (even its favorite dish) and Romain Walker, our referring expert, attached to the “EcoLab” laboratory, has verified all of our writings. The more aware we are of the importance of mangrove in our ecosystems, the more chances we will have to protect it. By sharing this information with your family and friends, you become an actor in the process of changing mentalities, and an additional safeguard against threats to our biodiversity.
