Coconuts - Unsung Heroes in Protecting Global Shorelines
Coconuts are not just a tropical delight but also emerging as unsung heroes in protecting global shorelines! As climate change poses threats of erosion and rising sea levels to coastal areas, innovative solutions are needed, and coconuts are stepping up to the challenge. With their buoyant shells and fibrous husks, coconuts are being utilised to build natural barriers, absorb wave energy, and prevent erosion along vulnerable coastlines. From eco-friendly coconut coir logs that stabilize shorelines to coconut husk erosion control mats that promote vegetation growth, these humble fruits are proving to be powerful allies in safeguarding our precious coastal ecosystems.
