Mangroves are a beautiful and important part of Mother Earth, but too few people know what they actually are and how much of an impact they have on our planet! This video is short, sweet, and to the point. However, if you want to learn more about mangroves, do more research! Spread awareness! The more people who know about mangroves, the healthier and greener Earth will be.
