Sierra Leone’s forestry director believes that if action isn’t taken that its mangrove ecosystem is in danger of being wiped out.

“There is (a) need to formulate and implement a sustainable policy… and a need for an integrated approach for the safeguard of the environmental and economic benefits of mangrove resources,” said Ahmed Mansaray.

It’s because of this that the country along with several other western African nations have signed on for a plan that would lead to sustainable mangrove management in the township of Freetown.

Mangroves are incredibly important to the ecosystem, and this is an important issue not only for Sierra Leone but for the rest of the world as well. It’s good to see that the country is taking serious steps to protect this part of the environment.
