Locals walking in the Mangroves on the coast of Zanzibar
Mangroves are one of the few tree species that can grow in sea water. They are important for coastal ecosystems, as their roots stabilise coastlines and reduce erosion from waves and storms. Mangroves also sequester large amounts of carbon, making them important for both local and global ecosystems.
