Minecraft helps you build a better world, one tree at a time

Minecraft players have helped raise more than $227,000 for the Nature Conservancy and mangrove restoration since The Wild Update was released, with one of the new biomes being the mangrove swamp.

“These areas are filled with towering mangrove trees, large mangrove roots and sweet little saplings called propagules,” writes Sofia Dankis on “Like a lot of things in Minecraft, they also exist in the real world. And like a lot of those things, one of the reasons that we added them to the Overworld is to show everyone how cool they are!”
