Mangroves are salt-tolerant trees that also make up one of The Bahamas' most important marine ecosystems. The Bahamas is home to three species of mangrove: red, black, and white mangroves, and a mangrove associate: buttonwood. Mangroves provide many ecosystem services and deserve our protection!
This series of videos includes a helpful introduction to mangrove ecosystems, and further activities that are part of the Mangrove Detectives program. If you are interested in becoming a Mangrove Detective and helping to collect data about the health of our mangroves, please contact us!
