About the event

We are excited to welcome KlimateNet member Ilena Zanella, Co-Founder of NGO Misión Tiburón, to hear about their carbon removal project in the Golfo Dulce Area.

This mangrove restoration project aims to restore 100 hectares of the mangrove habitat in the area. These mangroves have an important role as carbon sinks and Misión Tiburón’s work will engage local communities in ocean conservation and promote alternative livelihoods based on a blue economy, starting with the expansion of a women’s initiative.

In 2019 they were a Whitley Fund for Nature Award winner and in 2022 they won the Nature-Based Solution Continuation Funding from Whitley, due to their work in addressing climate change while simultaneously collaborating with local communities and protecting habitats. In 2022 they received the St Andrews Prize for the Environment to support their holistic model in ocean conservation.

Their Need: Funding, project exposure and promotion

Their offer: Ocean conservation expertise and volunteer opportunities.

Feel free to contact Ilena Co-Founder of Misión Tiburón, in the Blue Carbon and Oceans community on the KlimateNet app.
