Dr. Gordon Sato helps a tiny African country plant Mangrove trees by the salty Red Sea. He teaches the women how to plant seedling, place extra fertilizer in bags beside the roots and care for the sprouts. These sprouts turn into mangrove trees and give off carbon dioxide into the air. The leaves provide food for the goats and sheep thereby providing food and milk for the people.
This book shows what one special man did to help improve the lives of a whole small country. His project is called The Manzanar Project: Plant a Mangrove Tree-Feed a Family.
