Guardians of Mangroves

Muisne Island is literally built on mangroves. This magical setting is where Lidér grew up, among mangrove trees, coral reefs and the beach. Since the devastating earthquake that hit Ecuador in April 2016, he has been involved in the reconstruction of the island. He has also been fighting against the deforestation of mangroves and the displacement of locals by the dominant shrimp industry.
