This past summer, Conversation partnered with Conservation International to build thebluecarboninitiative.org, a new site for the Blue Carbon Initiative. The organization is a collaboration between the International Union for Conservation of Nature, the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of the United Nations Education, and the aforementioned Conservation International. On April 2nd, thebluecarboninitiative.org was officially launched.
Blue carbon ecosystems, such as mangroves, tidal marshes and seagrasses are significant for their ability to help mitigate global climate change. Through the website, the Blue Carbon Initiative and Conversation will be able to provide users with a single location to find the latest news, reports and scientific papers, and the growing database of blue carbon field projects.
