There aren't too many happy stories when it comes to restoring damaged ecosystems, but people in southern Thailand's Trang Province tell one of them, thanks to an innovative grassroots organization called Yad Fon. Founded in 1984, Yad Fon set out to rehabilitate the mangrove ecosystems that had sustained families in the area for thousands of years. How? By helping villagers manage their own natural resources.
The video was done by the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) and published in their Science Bulletins (http://www.amnh.org/explore/science-b...). It contains an interview with "Alfredo Quarto", MAP's Executive Director and Founder, regarding the negative impacts of shrimp aquaculture in mangrove coastal ecosystem.
