Mangroves Biodiversity and Ecosystem

Along tropical coastlines, mangroves are vital for healthy ecosystems and human communities. Despite the significance of these habitats, in the last few decades they have been extensively degraded and cleared, often in the interest of economic growth. Fortunately, such attitudes are changing and there is now increasing global appreciation for the remarkable mangrove forest.

In an effort to bring awareness to the importance of Mangroves, this curriculum was developed. There are ten units within the Mangrove Curriculum.

This entire curriculum should take approximately 14 hours to complete.
