Mangroves in Bali
Mangroves grow in saline coastal habitats and play an important ecological role. They have a specialized root system and reproductive cycle that mean that they can thrive in salt water. There are more than 30 species growing here in Bali and they are a source of traditional food, craft and fuel materials and also play a vital role in the coastal ecosystem.
