Wiener has intervened by working alongside locals to help plant 700 000 mangrove trees and worked to restore coral reefs. The trees protect people from storms by serving as a buffer to wind and waves.
Beautiful News also reports that Wiener established Haiti’s first Marine Protected Areas and was key in helping government come up with policies that make it illegal to cut down mangroves in the country.
