What’s your take-home message for readers about mangrove restoration?

Lalao Aigrette: “I would like to highlight the importance of local communities in restoration efforts. I think that if we plan, if we mobilise local communities, and if they understand the importance of the restoration, I’m 100 percent sure that they will make a big effort to restore it. I think that their involvement is the key for successful restoration.”
