Mangrove stumps in the sea
Stumps of cut mangrove trees submerged in sea water in Azizakpey, Ghana.
Seeing their land being claimed by the sea and their livelihoods destroyed has made many in this small fishing community despair. They now see their mangrove forests as something that will be lost, too, just like their coconut trees. But out of despair also came creativity. Rather than losing mangroves, residents have resorted to using what’s left of them for firewood, and charcoal, which they sell or use at home for cooking.
