How Drones Are Saving Myanmar's Mangrove Forests   

Conservationists are using drone technology to plant thousands of trees per day to restore areas affected by deforestation.


SNIPPET:

Biocarbon Engineering is working with the Myanmar-based nonprofit Worldview International Foundation (WIF) to oversee the project. WIF has already worked with local villages to plant six million trees since 2012, but the drones now make the project exponentially easier.

The drones work by first mapping deforested areas and analyzing the topography. Then they fire biodegradable pods into ideal locations. Sometimes the pods get displaced, so itís essential for local communities to be involved to make sure the saplings can flourish.

Mangroves are resilient trees that thrive in coastal areas, where their tendril-like roots weave through swamps and shallow bodies of water. In many parts of the world, mangroves are critical to the integrity of coastal communities ó they foster food sources, absorb carbon, improve air and water quality, and defend areas against sea level rise and storms.

Despite these benefits, mangroves are being destroyed at an alarming rate ó up to five times faster than forests elsewhere in the world, according to the United Nations. So far, nearly a quarter of all mangroves have been destroyed.

The primary drivers of this deforestation are development for coastal communities and aquaculture.
