Climate Solutions. Embrace the stink! (Stage 3, Stage 4)
Dig into mangrove forests to uncover the stinky magic of the mud as an efficient climate solution.
As part of the Powerhouses 100 Climate Conversations weekly podcast, selected innovators have presented simple positive messages to schools about what can be done to save our planet.
In this episode meet Dr Maria del Mar Palacios, a marine biologist, who studies the magic of the mud associated with mangrove forests at the edge of the sea. These, sometimes stinky, forests capture carbon at up to 40 times the rate of terrestrial forests making them one of the most efficient and readily available climate solutions.
This is an edited recording of an interview on Friday 12 August 2022 from the Powerhouse.
