Project leader Thor Lassen of Ocean Trust, right, and shrimp industry representative Les Hodgson check out the shoreline of Bahia Grande as a possible mangrove replanting location. The two have worked together to create mangrove beds near shrimp farms in Mexico. The wetland plants help to filter and purify water released by the shrimp farms.
