Why are you reporting this puzzle?

Mangrove grow in salt water - and put out aerial roots for stability against the tidal flow. Most exude excess salt through their leaves.
They are an essential breeding ground for fish, prawns (shrimp), crabs, barnacles etc, and they also protect the coastline from erosion during storms & tsunamis.

They are new for me too Rob. I'm glad you made the photo. They look beautiful and I'm glad you explained that roots. It sounds very logical. Also I learn every day on Jigidi.

They are not new to me, but they always fascinate me with their root system. Thanks Rob.

Oops - sorry I missed you Patti! Thanks - I'm pleased to show you mangroves too!!!

Thanks Janet - Chris thought I was a bit crazy for taking a pic, but I thought that some of our Jigidi friends might not have seen them before:))

Ah - well I'm pleased to show them to you Laura :)))) Thanks!!

I have never seen these, either. Amazing, Robyn!

Ours are in decline in some parts of the coast too Dave - developers have very strict guidelines to follow if they want to build resorts & marinas.
this was right beside the marina & we motored past it to get to the jetty! They also have crocs in this part of the coast!!! Thanks!!

Thanks Lyndee - I like the sound of Sanibel Island:))))

Sanibel Island in Florida has got some nice Mangroves. I don't think I've seen them anywhere else.

Excellent photo showing what looks to be very healthy mangrove. They are deteriorating in alot of places around the world. I did see recently that their range in Florida is expanding Northward because of warmer winter temperatures. Thanks Robyn!
