Restoring degraded mangrove forests in Kenya: Shaffi's story

Restoring degraded mangrove forests in Kenya: Shaffi's story
Hassan Shaffi Shetai grew up witnessing the destruction of mangrove forests along the coast of Lamu, Kenya, where trees were being harvested for charcoal production.

Shaffi now works for Eden Reforestation Projects as a Team Leader and Boat Captain, where he helps the reforestation efforts in Kenya to restore the forests he saw cut down.

This helps restore the mangrove forests, while enabling those who are dependent on mangroves to earn a living and break the cycle of deforestation in this region.
