Mangroves Nature Walk

Did You Know?

  • Mangrove forests stabilize the coastline by reducing erosion caused by storm surges, currents, waves and tides.

  • Mangroves protect water quality by removing nutrients and pollutants from stormwater runoff before they reach seagrass habitats and coral reefs. 

  • Mangrove peat absorbs water during heavy rains and storm surge, reducing the chances of coastal flooding.

  • Mangroves provide nursery habitat for many commercial fish and shellfish, and thus contribute to the local abundance of seafood.

  • Mangroves protect species that are the basis of our seafood industry.

  • Mangrove systems provide shelter to a range of wildlife species including birds and honey bees.

  • Mangroves serve as nesting areas for coastal birds. Many birds depend on mangroves for part of their seasonal migrations. Even dead mangroves play an important role, providing roosting areas for bird species.
