Project Description

Mangrove Forests play a crucial part in the ecosystems of the world’s oceans and are a highly productive ecosystem in their own right. Many marine species from all over the world visit mangrove areas to breed and protect their young.

Mangrove Forests support unique ecosystems, especially on their intricate root systems. The mesh of mangrove roots produces a quiet, protected marine region for fish, crabs, oysters, lobsters and shrimp. Mangrove forests filter out pollution, stabilize sediments, hold nutrients, protect the shoreline from erosion and provide food, nesting and nursery areas for many animals, including at least 220 fish species, 24 reptile and amphibian species, 18 mammal species and 200 bird species. Mangrove crabs improve the nutritional quality of the mangrove mud for other bottom feeders by munching their way through the mangrove leaves.
