mangrove ecosystems course

Ocean Education – Mangrove Ecosystems

This course provides the background knowledge for and introduces students to the vital role that mangroves play in the marine ecosystem, how they develop. You will learn how to map an actual mangrove forest and recognise the trees and other life that inhabits this incredible environment.
The practical elements of this course will collect data to be used to create the first complete zonal map of the Kei Ling Ha Hoi mangrove forest, provide ongoing data to monitor its environment, and develop enough evidence to protect this important mangrove system from future development.
