After the hurricane, about 80% of the Red Mangrove stands in the Cayman islands where lost. The Department of Environment has focused attention on rehabilitating these stands. The first major effort has involved the creation of a plant nursery to grow Red Mangroves for rehabilitation projects and involves assistance from Reef Ball's Red Mangrove Volunteer Teams. Future projects will include the planting of the nursery stock throughout the island in areas most affected by the storm damage.
