🌳 Mangroves are a precious gift to nature, playing an important role in our planet. Unfortunately, few realize their true value, especially young people.

🌳 Every mangrove tree originates from a preschool, and a nature-loving society begins in small conscious groups.

🌳 Therefore, the issue of raising awareness of the young generation about the role of mangrove forests is extremely important. Here’s what we’ll explore together in the first lesson below.


1. Reduce the impact of climate change

🌳 In recent years, the phrase “climate change” has become too familiar to you all. With global warming and countless consequences such as melting ice, natural disasters, the main cause is that the amount of CO2 is gradually taking up a place in our atmosphere.

🌳 At this time, mangroves are a great “savior” with the ability to absorb CO2 from twice to four times that of tropical forests and also extremely effective carbon sinks.

🌳 After removing CO2 from the atmosphere, much of the carbon is used to make the roots, leaves, and branches of the plant. When the roots, branches and leaves of the tree fall, they fall to the seabed and carry the stored carbon buried in the soil. This buried carbon is called “green carbon.”

🌳 With five times the storage of tropical forests, mangroves are considered to be the giant “green carbon” reservoirs of our planet.

2. Natural “water purifier”

🌳 Mangroves act as a filter of residues, cleaning our water lines in an incredible way.

🌳 The root system of mangroves helps stabilize coastal water quality by removing contaminants coming from the mainland. Mangrove root system slows water flow, deposits sediment. As a result, they also help maintain water quality for surrounding “neighbors” such as corals and seagrass.

3. Mitigate erosion, prevent natural calamities

🌳 In addition, they are important in reducing the impact of storms and sea-level rise. Mangroves are the “green belt,” which are important protectors – protecting coastal communities from hurricanes, tsunamis, rising sea levels and erosion. A system of roots on the ground reduces the intensity of waves and the energy of the wind.

🌳 Wave strength can be reduced energy from 13% to 66% per 100m of mangrove forest.

4. Provide habitats for other plants and aquatic animal species

🌳 Mangroves are one of the most biologically complex and productive ecosystems on our planet. They provide a home, nursery and feeding place for many species of fish, birds, insects, reptiles and even “mangrove tigers” in India. Mangroves also play an important role in the conservation of endangered and endangered species.

🌳 Despite occupying only a small portion of the earth’s surface – just 0.1% – mangroves are home to nearly 60 unique species. There are 40 species of birds, 10 species of reptiles, 6 species of mammals and 1 species of amphibian that can only be found in this ecosystem.

5. Providing livelihoods for people

🌳 Mangroves also provide many materials that coastal people often use such as firewood and coal (from dead branches), wood, fibers, dyes, leaves for roofing. Products from mangroves are also used in soaps, cosmetics, perfumes and insecticides. In addition, some mangroves are also used as medicinal herbs in medicine with anti-swollen, anti-swollen effects, supporting the treatment of diabetes.


🌳 Mangroves are also one of the most productive fishing grounds in the world, bringing a variety of fish, crabs, shrimp and mollusks. As a result, people living around mangroves can exploit fisheries resources from mangroves for a living.

6. Ecological tourism

🌳 In addition, mangroves can also become a great ecotourism destination. Tourists have many options to experience the amazing biodiversity of mangroves, such as through boat tours, kayaking, snorkeling, bird watching and crab fishing,… Mangroves provide people with a relaxing experience from enjoying a precious time of peace, mingling with fresh nature. It makes people more conscious of preserving this magical forest full of “multipurpose”.
