We Transform Degraded Land

Into Highly Productive 

Landscapes With Seawater

  • Since the 1970’s 1/3 of Earth’s mangroves and seagrasses have been destroyed…an unspeakable loss to people and the planet.

  • The cause:  unsustainable human management of land, via agricultures, aquacultures, wood cutting, tourism, and overfishing.  These provide livelihoods and income in the short term, but lead to a cycle of degradation and poverty in the long run.

  • By creating regenerative economies that align human wellbeing with ecological health we can unlock the door to restoring these degraded ecosystems.

    • What makes mangroves and seagrasses so awesome?  For one, they are a powerful solution to climate change, storing up to 10x more carbon than land-based forests.

    •  Mangroves are a keystone of ocean health; an estimated 60% 0f all ocean species rely on mangroves during some part of their lifecycle, including many reef & commercially important fish.

    • Mangroves provide coastal protection from storm surges, hurricanes, and even sea-level rise.  They cool local climates and are a critical component of the water cycle.  As such, they are a powerful nature-based solution for climate mitigation & adaptation.

      • Regenerative Resources acquires degraded land (through purchase, lease, or partnership with landholders), transforms it, and commercializes the outputs.

        This transformation may be ecological restoration, or the establishment of RSA (regenerative seawater agriculture) systems.

      • Where possible, we partner with local and indigenous communities, maximizing local expertise, local leadership, local labor, and local employment.

      • By aligning community and human wellbeing with ecosystem health, we lay the foundation to reestablish indigenous patterns, so that people are stewards of their ecosystems.
