Surakit Laeaddee holds a shrimp after shrimp fishing, at his house in Leam Fa Pha, Thailand, January 26, 2016. Since the 1980s, a boom in shrimp farming has decimated mangroves around the world. The trend has destroyed a key ecosystem for carbon storage, added to emissions of planet-warming carbon dioxide, and exposed shorelines and communities to storm surges and erosion. Now, growing consumer demand for organic and sustainable foods has spurred interest in shrimp farms like Surakit's that may stem mangrove loss and encourage planting in areas long devoid of trees.

Flocks of shoreline birds inhabit Raccoon Island, one of several barrier islands threatened by coastal erosion and oil exploration, southwest of Houma, Louisiana April 20, 2011. When BP's Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded and sank in the Gulf of Mexico last April, killing 11 workers, authorities first reported that no crude was leaking into the ocean. They were wrong. One year on, oil from the largest spill in U.S. history clogs wetlands, pollutes the ocean and endangers wildlife, not to mention the toll it has inflicted on the coastal economies of Florida, Mississippi, Alabama and especially Louisiana.

Local fishermen bet on divine fury, scientists raise theories, but the fact is that the town of Atafona is disappearing. Located in a delta in the state of Rio de Janeiro, in Brazil, this small town of sand is being swallowed by the ocean as rising temperatures speed up the process of erosion. According to researchers, a total of 183 buildings have been destroyed and the Marine lighthouse moved twice in the past 30 years. Researchers from the Federal Fluminense University (UFF) created the Atafona Project in 2003 to study the causes of accelerated coastal erosion in the region.

A destroyed house is seen on Atafona beach in Atafona 
A destroyed house is seen on Atafona beach in Atafona, about 225 miles (360 kilometers) north of Rio de Janeiro, November 11, 2010. Local fishermen bet on divine fury, scientists raise theories, but the fact is that the town of Atafona is disappearing. Located in a delta in the state of Rio de Janeiro, in Brazil, this small town of sand is being swallowed by the ocean as rising temperatures speed up the process of erosion. According to researchers, a total of 183 buildings have been destroyed and the Marine lighthouse moved twice in the past 30 years.

The remains of an abandoned house damaged by erosion are seen on a beach in Grand-Lahou on the southern Ivory Coast in this picture taken June 8, 2010. When the ocean swallowed up their homes, it also divided the people of this sleepy Ivorian fishing village -- half of them moved inland, the other half stayed to brave the waves. In populated coastal West Africa, rising sea levels linked to the melting of the polar ice caps are conspiring with coastal erosion to slowly submerge communities. Picture taken June 8.

According to reports from local environmental agencies, coastal erosion has now affected around 75 km (46 miles) of Topejawa's shoreline. The erosion in the area is caused by damaged coral reefs following fish bombing by fishermen. Coral reefs help slow the rate of erosion by acting as a buffer against waves.
