Our short film The Mangrove Secret screened at COP 22

This February 2017, a Watertrek crew composed of our London coordinators Mel and Paul undertook an expedition paddling in Burma's mangroves, offering the chance to raise awareness on the protection of mangrove trees and its importance to prevent global warming. The mangrove plants can recycle five time as much carbon as a regular forest. It also plays a role as a natural barrier against floods, tsunamis and helps fix the ground.

This expedition in partnership with Worldview Impact Foundation, Starboard et le Thor Heyendahl Climate Park has given our Director Ka Ki Wong the opportunity to create a short film - The Mangrove Secret - that has been screened during COP 22.
