Yesterday we celebrated the “International Day for Conservation of Mangrove Ecosystems.”
Mangroves are at the heart of our Bahamian marine ecosystems that sustains our way of life! Marine species such as conch, crawfish, and juvenile fish live and grow up in and around mangroves and rely on them for protection.
Preserving our Bahamian mangrove ecosystem is vital, not only do they protect other organisms but they also protect our communities and our homes by preventing flooding and protecting our shorelines against erosion.
