Mangroves may be a key component to mitigating climate change and sea level rise, according to an ongoing study at J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge on Sanibel Island.

Through a partnership with the United States Geological Survey and the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Services, a six-year research project has been exploring the connections between mangroves, climate change, sea level rise, and the effect of nutrients from Lake Okeechobee.

As results are analyzed over the next year, lead biologist Jeremy Conrad expects them to provide a better understanding of when Sanibel will be underwater due to sea level rise.
