CNS: Mangrove Protection and Restoration

Increase restoration and protection of coastal and mangrove ecosystems, including Trinity Inlet.

Why it is important?

Mangroves play a major role in carbon sequestration and mitigation of effects from rising sea levels and catastrophic weather events. Coastal areas also provide important fish habitat and breeding areas. The urban proximity to our coastal habitats and the increasing impacts of climate change require special focus.

Examples of Local Action

Monitor, manage and protect Trinity Inlet to maintain its natural and cultural values.
Involve Traditional Owners to apply traditional management and monitoring of the local plants and animals.
