Cuba looks to mangroves to fend off rising seas

In this July 2, 2014, photo, government forest scientist Reynier Samon shows a sprouting mangrove in Batabano, Cuba. For decades Cuba's mangrove forests have been under siege, their wood harvested by many to burn as fuel, build furniture, even as a spice to season meat. Now island authorities are putting together a national study, set a moratorium on all mangrove logging and implementing an ambitious reforestation plan that aims to safeguard the first line of defense against hurricanes and rising sea levels.
