Since 1992, Mangrove Action Project (MAP) has been partnering with mangrove forest communities, grassroots, NGOs, researchers, and local governments to conserve & restore mangrove forests and related coastal ecosystems. MAP also promotes community based, sustainable management of coastal resources & has also launched a consumer awareness campaign in the U.S. called Question Your Shrimp.
The Question Your Shrimp campaign is currently working to gather support from restaurants, chefs, retailers, & consumers who are pledging not to serve or buy unhealthy imported shrimp. By raising awareness & changing consumer demand in the U.S. (currently, the #1 consumer of imported shrimp), the campaign strives to reduce mangrove deforestation & oppression of coastal communities overseas.
