Our first endeavor to Restore the Tropical Seas will be in partnership with the Eden Reforestation Projects. Through this venture, Twenty5Degrees will donate 10% of each sale in order restore mangrove habitats in Haiti.
Mangroves act as nursery habitat for a variety of species including two thirds of food fish, corals, sea turtles, and even juvenile sharks. It is quite simple, the more mangroves, the healthier the surrounding ocean.
Mangroves also protect people. Mangroves are the first line of defense in many natural disasters such as hurricanes or tsunamis.
Well, glad you asked. Most mangrove species grow between the latitudes 25 ֯ N and 25 ֯ S. Also, most of the Carribean, where all of our conservation efforts are focused, lies within these two latitudes. Finally, we thought it was a cool name!
