Description

On International Mangrove Day, we reflect on the urgent need to protect and preserve mangrove forests, such as La Tirana on the coast of El Salvador, and their fragile ecosystems.
Mangrove forests, such as La Tirana on the coast of El Salvador, are part of a complex ecosystem that protects coastlines from erosion and filters coastal waters. Communities living in and around these forests depend on this natural resource for their livelihoods and care for the biodiversity of these fragile ecosystems.
This testimony shows how people living near a mangrove forest in El Salvador depend on this natural resource for their livelihoods and care for the biodiversity of their fragile ecosystem.
