ACES North America & Foundation Mahatma Gandhi, both non-profits dedicated to improving the quality of life for the poeple of the Dominican Republic, are launching a coastal mangrove restoration program in September, 2015. Two recent Lycoming College graduates, Taylor Berry and Hannah Morrissette, will spend six months in beautiful Las Terrenas where they will work to rebuild an ecosystem capable of supporting healthy mangrove life.

Though Taylor and Hannah's field work will be critical to restoring the fragile mangrove forests, they will also be working with local communities and school children to create sustainable change. Taylor and Hannah will teach adults and children how to plant and maintain mangrove forests, the role of water quality in maintaining these forests, and how to appeal to local government officials and mobilize the resources necessary to address community needs. Much of their efforts will focus on the importance of clean water and, in so doing, allow them to tackle an important issue that affects the Las Terrenas citizens' quality of life. 

Taylor and Hannah are both passionate about making the world a better place. They have decided to take six months out of their lives to help the community of Las Terrenas solve an important ecological problem and help empower a generation of leaders capable to addressing future problems on their own. We hope you will support them in this important endeavor.
