What's Included

Through photosynthesis, mangroves link the sun to the sea. These salt-adapted trees capture much of the energy that drives our marine communities and provide habitat to many species of wildlife. We learn how mangroves grow in salt water and explore the rich communities they support. We slog through a mangal (the term for a mangrove forest) and experience – firsthand – the riches of this environment.
