International Mangrove Day

by Denis Burke — last modified Jul 26, 2013 11:07 AM

On International Mangrove Day, we reflect on the urgent need to protect and preserve mangrove forests, such as La Tirana on the coast of El Salvador, and their fragile ecosystems

Mangrove forests, such as La Tirana on the coast of El Salvador, are part of a complex ecosystem that protects coastlines from erosion and filters coastal waters. Communities living in and around these forests depend on this natural resource for their livelihoods and care for the biodiversity of these fragile ecosystems.
