Visiting Scientist Presentation

For more than eight years he undertook the challenge of recovering the red mangrove (Rhizophora mangle), and successfully achieved the reforestation of a large area in his community. His free presentation will take place February 27 at 5:30 p.m. at Eco-Alianza’s CenCoMA headquarters in downtown Loreto. Come learn more from David about the importance of preserving mangroves and our wetlands as a continuing celebration of International Wetlands Day.
