Mangroves

Mangrove trees have evolved to tolerate the harsh conditions of the coast, and provide a marine forest habitat. Within the mass of tree roots and branches, juvenile fish find shelter. As well as providing habitat for vulnerable creatures, mangroves stabilise our coastlines, playing a critical role in controlling sediment runoff from the land into the oceans.

Most of us see the qualities of the mangrove forests through a lens distorted by swarms of biting insects, foul smelling mud, and the occasional crocodile. We have found that they have a beautiful side, as well as being crucial marine habitats. We have braved the flies, crocs, and occasional mud bath so that you too can take another look at the mangroves.
