Human Impacts on Mangroves

- N/A

Although mangroves contribute to the economy in many ways, these benefits are not obvious like the benefits from the same area of a commercial crop such as sugar cane or bananas. Mangroves are essential to maintain coastal fisheries, protect property and coastlines from the effects of cyclones and storms and protect coral reefs from sediments and pollutants. However mangroves are frequently seen as expendable and little care is taken of them. Often mangroves areas are just seen as an area for mosquito breeding and a place to unlawfully dump rubbish. Thankfully, this view is started to change as education improves about the benefits of these wetland areas.
