4Ocean® Marine Nurseries Bracelet
Mangroves are considered the nurseries of the sea
Many ocean species nest or give birth in mangroves, including manatees, seabirds, sharks, corals, shellfish, crustaceans, and countless types of fish. Baby sea animals grow up sheltered by the mangroves until they’re ready to venture out to the reefs or deep ocean. Because they’re home to so many species’ babies, mangroves are considered the nurseries of the sea and one of the biggest contributors to the ocean’s biodiversity.
These plants are also intricately tied to the sustainability of our fisheries and global food security. A lot of the seafood we eat, like grouper, redfish, snapper, and shellfish start life among mangroves. Many of the world’s fish catches are either directly or indirectly dependent on mangrove forests for survival.
