The mangroves and the estuaries are breeding grounds for most marine life, hence the conservation of the areas will provide continuous mean of reproduction of marine life which otherwise could suffer reduction in their population as Liberia is a country which is heavily dependent on wild meat including fish and other marine life as principal source of protein. Building the capacity of community dwellers will shift their activities from gathering to production oriented initiatives which will ultimately reduce the degradation of the biodiversity of the mangrove forest.
The community dwellers along with their leadership structures will be involved in all aspect of the project – from planning, through formal and informal discussions to explain the idea of the project; implementation by their participation in the Mangrove Action Groups and schools will increase ownership and commitment for the project; and monitor and evaluation.
