Red Mangroves

Red MangrovesAmazing in so many ways, the red mangroves have adapted to and thrive in a a very watery and salty evironment. Much of the Indian River Lagoon is home to these ancient plants which not only provide habitat and a nursery for many juvenile fish, crabs and other animals, but they also help stabilize the soil, trap silt and sediment and filter the water. We need them. BLG
