  1. Mangrove forests and estuaries are the breeding and nursery grounds for a number of marine organisms including the commercially important shrimp, crab and fish species. Hence, loss of mangroves not only affects us indirectly but there are direct economic repercussions through loss of fishing industry.

  2. Mangroves protect shorelines from damaging storm and hurricane winds, waves, and floods. Mangroves also help prevent erosion by stabilizing sediments with their tangled root systems. They maintain water quality and clarity, filtering pollutants and trapping sediments originating from land.

  6. It is important to save mangroves since if there are no mangrove forests, then there will have no meaning. It is like having a tree with no roots, for the mangroves are the roots of the sea.

  8. Mangroves act to purify the water from human wastes and pollutants, and in doing so, coral reefs are less effected. An essential component of the island ecosystem, mangroves provide structure to the island, while preventing erosion. The coastline is protected because the roots of mangroves act to trap sediments that would otherwise be washed back out by the waves. Moreover, mangroves provide a habitat for many different species of animals, including bats, lobsters, manatees, and birds. The roots and branches of mangroves provide an ideal site for animals to feed, mate, and give birth. A symbiotic relationship exists between many animals and the mangrove; for example, crabs feeds on the mangrove leaves, as well as other nutrients and then recycle minerals into the mangrove forest.

  10. Mangroves have a very important role in our environment and in our daily lives.Those are homes of thousands of species of fish and animals. It also release a maximum amount of oxygen. If all of these were gone, one important link of our mother earth will be in danger and so all of us will might suffer

      it’s important that we save the mangrove because Mangroves are buffers between the land and sea and hence they protect the land from erosion.

      It is important to save the Mangroves because they provide shelter to different living organisms particularly those belonging to the marine ecosystem and also help prevent erosion brought by storms. Overall, they help in maintaining and sustaining the balance in our ecosystems.

      Mangroves are important as a protection to the environment. They protect shorelines from erosion and they contribute to higher water quality. They also provide water-resistant wood used in construction and medicines.
