2023 Tropical Restoration Workshop Report

After the 2021 Workshop on Mangrove Restoration held on Bonaire, Jessica Johnson (Coastal Dynamics; Bonaire), Jimena Samper Villareal (Centro de Investigación en Ciencias del Mar y Limnología (CIMAR) of the University of Costa Rica (UCR)) and Sabine Engel (Internos/Mangrove Maniacs; Bonaire) joined forces to establish the Tropical Restoration Network. The aim of this network is to provide a platform for the collaboration and methodological harmonization of the many efforts for restoration of blue carbon habitats, focused on seagrasses and mangroves, in the Caribbean, Gulf of Mexico and Eastern Tropical Pacific region.
