Earth Day Celebration: Mangrove Planting

by | 23-04-2017 12:16 recommendations 0

The mangrove forests are one of the most vital water ecosystems in the Philippines. Mangroves survive high amounts of salinity. This ecosystem provides an amazing amount of biodiversity varying from algaes to surface animals. Their roots provide shelter for both saltwater and freshwater creatures while the forest provides foods for many types of species. 

In the Philippines, with it's typhoons and frequent natural disasters, mangroves play a very important biological function. They have a high capacity in recovering from natural disasters and they can offer an obstacle for the winds and waves making the intensity of the storm lessen for the community. Their roots can also stabilize shorelines on top of it all. 

Mangroves are majestic beings both in their physique and their biology. That's why yesterday [April 22], Let's Do It Philippines together with different stakeholders planted 100 mangroves in Punta Dumalag, Davao City.

And the Hawaii'an proverbs remain true, I nā mālama ?oe i ka ?āina, na ka ?āina malama iā ?oe (if you take care of the land, the land will take care of you).

    Mangroves play a vital role and are very important because of the beneficial effects they have on the marine ecology. Like coral reefs, mangrove forests are extremely productive ecosystems that provide numerous good and services both to the marine environment and people. Its so nice that 'Let's Do It Philippines' together with others planted 100 mangroves on 'Earth day'. Thanks for sharing.

    Angel, thank you for your report. I have heard of mangrove few times, but this is actually my first time reading some information about it. I have never seen it in front of my eyes, but after reading this report, I wish to see one. The plant just looks so charming.
