Mangrove Action Project

Mangrove Action Project Photography Contest

Vote for your favorite mangrove photo for the People's Choice Award!

This July marked the 20th anniversary of World Mangrove Day, which is recognized by UNESCO as a time to celebrate and appreciate the many benefits that mangrove ecosystems provide, and to make commitments to protect them.


To celebrate this important day, the Mangrove Action Project created an annual mangrove photography contest. This year they received stunning images of mangroves from around the world, featuring the special communities and wildlife that depend on them. All photos that were entered are part of a special online exhibition to help raise awareness of these coastal ecosystems.


Now, it’s your turn to vote for your favorite photos! Explore the gallery and choose which photo you think should win the People’s Choice Award. Voting ends August 31, and winners will be announced in early September.
