Global Mangrove Watch

Working with dozens of universities, NGOs and government agencies across the world, Global Mangrove Watch is an online platform that uses satellite imagery to develop maps to track changes in mangrove status and distribution. Our data is used by partners to prioritise restoration sites, quantify carbon budgets and identify threats from conversion, erosion and pollution. The near-real-time monitoring system enables tracking of illegal mangrove conversion, providing timely information for law enforcement, while enabling us to evaluate and improve restoration practice.
