Casamance Mangroves
Senegal, The Casamance river started 2020 Active Restoration
WeForest is working with Oceanium, the most experienced mangrove restoration NGO in Senegal. Our goal in Casamance is to replant mangroves over 2245 hectares at a density of 5000 trees per hectare and re-establish sustainable and profitable mangrove-friendly fishing and farming activities for local communities. Our project here is expected to form part of the largest carbon-certified mangrove project in the world, together with a similar project in the more northerly Sine Saloum delta.
