Where Land meets the Sea!
Mangrove forests are forests where the land meets the sea in tropical and sub-tropical regions. The whole ecosystem consists of a variety of trees and shrubs that can survive in the intertidal zone, which is part marine and part terrestrial. Crucial for preserving biodiversity, they support a diverse fauna, including 341 species that are globally endangered, from seahorses to tigers according to The State of the World’s Mangrove report 2021. The UN regards the mangrove ecosystem as a rare, spectacular and prolific ecosystem which is a huge contributor to the well-being of the planet and the safety of coastal communities.
