A Race we must win
We are planting 1,000,000 mangroves for the Malizia Mangrove Park
You donate, we plant
Boris Herrmann, the most famous sailor in Germany, just successfully finished the toughest single-handed regatta in the world, the Vendèe Globe Race. Together with the Mama Earth Foundation, he and his team have created the Malizia Mangrove Park in the Philippines / Mati, Davao Oriental. There, through donations, one million mangroves are planted to the already existing ones. The park thus makes an enormously important contribution to the restoration of the ecosystem, provides a better income for the residents and the mangroves bind high amounts of the climate-damaging CO2.
Every mangrove counts for our unique Malizia Mangrove Park. The price of 0.33 euros for a mangrove covers collecting the seeds, growing the saplings in the nurseries and exposing the mangroves.
We have prepared for donations: 20 euros = 60. 50 euros = 150 or 100 euros = 300 mangroves.
In the meantime, the mangroves in the Philippines are under nature protection, because they are the most important ecosystem in the world alongside the rainforest. An intact mangrove belt not only provides breeding areas for fish, but also food for birds and reptiles, fish and crabs. At the same time, a mangrove belt protects the coral reefs and the shore from erosion. Strong storm tide waves are also reduced.
The yacht moves through the sails with the power of the wind and, with its 1.3 kW solar modules from Solbian Solar and two Sea Hydro generators, generates the energy that is required on board from the power of the water. In 2019, four trips across the Atlantic were made without using fossil fuels. In 2020 we will aim for the same.

Based on the experience of 1.45 million planted mangroves, we are reforesting another million mangroves for Boris Herrmann’s team, which will grow together with the existing mangroves to form the Malizia Mangrove Park in Mati, Mindanao, Philippines. Of the million, almost 60,000 mangroves have already been planted (as of October 2020), and a further 100,000 are already growing in the tree nurseries, which give the fishing families additional income. All efforts are supported by the Philippine Environmental Protection Agency, as the importance of the mangroves has now been recognized. As a non-profit foundation, we are subject to an annual audit.
As a non-profit and recognized foundation, we stand for transparency and openness according to the legislator. All costs are subject to an annual audit. We are supported by the Philippine environmental protection agency DENR. We are there when the trees are missing. Instead of sitting in the office, we get out and plant.

Mayor Michelle Marie Denise Rabate is our local patron. Our mangrove plantings are controlled by the Davao Oriental State College of Science and Technology. Together with our forest managers, the students will not only monitor the growing and planting in the tree nurseries and will constantly monitor the planting areas, but will also prepare studies on the mangroves as part of their training, all of which will be made publicly available. Among other things, a robust study under the direction of Dr. Lea AngSinco-Jiminec and Dr. Johnglen Seniel, who measures the amount of carbon dioxide released into the soil. In addition to the scientific studies, the residents of the bay have direct additional income from raising and planting. The schools are also involved in order to bring the children closer to the topics of nature and environmental protection
How is this action made transparent? Very simple: We publish the plantings monthly and accompany them with recordings from our drone, but also with Google Earth maps. The good thing about Google Earth is that the time slider lets you see the situation before planting and after planting. There is a KML file for each of the individual areas so that you can fly to the planting areas by double-clicking in the Explorer. Sign up for our newsletter and stay up to date.
The white areas show the newly surveyed areas, which together cover over 127 hectares.
One of the surfaces in detail. Our forest managers and five forest managers from Mati have walked all areas to make the maps.
All available vehicles were loaded with mangroves.
Our partners in Mati did a good job.
