As your post on coral reefs, this is also excellent and educative post that raises awareness of the threatened environment. The protection aspect of mangrove forests is especially evident in tsunami-prone areas where healthy mangroves forests preserved thousands of lives from huge waves, as happened in Sri Lanka. In the oceans everything is interconnected; coral reefs depend on surrounding habitats such as the fields of seaweeds and mangrove forests. By devastating one natural habitat we directly influence the devastation of other habitats.
Ken, I agree with you. Those who think that the environment is less important than the economy have a mind which is narrow or myopic.

Are Countries and Cities Running Out of Water

While 70% of the earth’s surface is water, only 3% of this water is fresh. Due to this, almost 1 billion people cannot access fresh water and another 2.7 billion experiences scarcity. By 2025, scientists have predicted that two-thirds of the...

It's really terrible what's happening with water. I wouldn't be surprised if wars in the near future are not for oil but clean water.

On the bright side, there are efforts to create potable water from sea water, which we have in abundance. Places like the Canary Islands, for example, have desalination plants (specialized systems that turn salt water into potable water). So, there are solutions available with today's tech; we just need to use them.

Thank you for your thoughts Jerry Fletcher   The native wisdom spoke of sustainable  utlisatation in all sacred texts across the world. We have veered too far drawing borders and creating  man made divides that restricts us than supports us as humans. Only when we begin to reform and educate the children towards seeing our world as one and not as a separate parts will true conservation happen.

I find it impossible that so many individuals do not believe in climate change. I think it is because they do not want to give up their profligate ways. Is it possible that the western idea of property/ownership is at the heart of this stupidity? The native peoples of North America and Australia to my knowledge held the earth to be sacred and would not have committed these outrageous acts..
