    Hi Stephanie,
    I am a passionate crocheter . Kindly answer as to what the crochet square that you are asking will be used for to save the mangrove s . The coastline distance is around 3000 hectares across UAE. So the crochet squares would be used as a banner to attract attention to the project or used to fence around the coastline !!!!!


    1. Hi
      Thank you for your interest. We aim to connect all the squares collecte to create a type of fence to raise awareness for the protection. It will be temporary, but it will be placed on site in the mangroves, yes.
