We Are the World Blogfest

I know, it’s the first week in April and the #WATWB boat sailed last Friday. But better late than never, right?

This week I’m sharing another post filled with good news for the environment. lt’s the story of a man in Senegal who has spent the past ten years reforesting a mangrove swamp with the help of the Senegalese local coastal populations. They’ve managed to plant 152 MILLION mangrove trees to help reverse the devastation caused by clear-cutting practices of the late twentieth century. You can read the full story here.

Here’s how #WATWB works: On the last Friday of each month (ahem…) a number of bloggers participate in a worldwide blog hop in which each blogger highlights a story that spreads good news, happiness, and hope.

Your cohosts for this month are Shilpa Garg, Sylvia McGrath, Dan Antion, and Damyanti Biswas. And if you want to read more uplifting articles, please visit the WATWB Facebook page here or the Twitter home page here to find links to other stories.
