About this webinar
Mangroves - Ocean's Nursery
Someone has very rightly said that if there are no mangrove forests, then the sea will have no meaning. It is like having a tree with no roots, for the mangroves are the roots of the sea.
Mangroves are highly productive ecosystems providing numerous goods and services that include support of fisheries, maintenance and improvement of water quality, coastal protection and carbon sequestration.
Sustaining mangroves satisfies various targets like working on the existence of water creatures, enhancing the quality of life of coastal people, keeping the oceans clean etc. Mangroves give a fundamental and safe environment to large number of aquatic species. They additionally prevent erosion and safeguard the land. The importance of restoration and protection of mangroves is also related to Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 14. It commits countries to unite over the protection of our oceans and the lives that depend on it.
More discussion will be done about Mangroves and how they are important for Sustainable Development in our upcoming webinar of Future Life Skills.
