#50 Mangroove trees


I used to dislike these trees when I was in grade school; they looked weird growing in muddy waters. However, my perspective changed when Mrs. Gonzaga, my high school Biology teacher, took my class to a section of Panguil Bay; she allowed us to observe marine bio-diversity. I’ve learned that a mangrove garden played a vital role as breeding, nursery, and feeding areas for a variety of species.
