About Mangroves:
Mangroves are one of the most productive ecosystems on this planet and are most important features of the coastal habitats. Known for their salt tolerant characteristics as well as other tangible and non-tangible benefits, the thick root network of mangroves proves to be an excellent bio-diversity habitat for varied marine life. The intricate root network of mangroves holds on to the soil tightly and effectively prevents soil erosion due to coastal events. Mangroves also function as stabilizers of sediment on the shoreline and protect the coasts from storm and salty wind. Mangrove forests are important nesting areas for the resident water birds as thousands visit them during summers and being protectors of the coast to providing a thriving ecosystem for countless species, mangroves definitely play multiple roles.
