Mangrove Support System

Arching mangrove roots like these help keep trunks upright in the soft sediments at water’s edge. More about mangroves can be found in our Mangroves featured story.

This is a very cool page. I am 15 years old and I already know I want to be a marine biologist. I want to learn about and save the majority of the planet through research and expeditions. My favorite sea creature is the leather back sea turtle and I still have yet to witness how gynourmous and beautiful these giant creatures are with my own eyes.
