6 1 | What Are Mangroves All About? Mangroves seeds develop directly on mature mangrove trees.

7 1 | What Are Mangroves All About? Mangrove seedlings (propagules) already have leaves and roots.

8 1 | What Are Mangroves All About? Most mangrove species develop impressive root systems.

9 1 | What Are Mangroves All About? The way mangroves breath: vertical roots can be up to 3 meters long.

10 1 | What Are Mangroves All About? Successful reforestation: 70ha of mangrove forest in Kalibo, Panay.

11  Why do We Need Mangroves?

12 2 | Why Do We Need Mangroves? Mangroves protect human settlements from storm and typhoons.

13 2 | Why Do We Need Mangroves? Coastal communities need the mangroves for natural protection.

14 2 | Why Do We Need Mangroves? Shellfish gatherers at low tide. No mangroves – less shellfish.
