People don't like
Mangroves because they think as them of Muddy, mosquito and some
times crocodile infested swamps. In the past People thought
it was a sign of progess to knock them down. So what is the point of
a start , an average of seventy-five types of fish are caught and
spend most of
their life in Mangroves or are relient on the Mangroves for
their food. Mangroves also protect the coast by absorbing the
of the storm driven waves and wind. The only two yachts that were
undamaged by Cyclone Tracey in Darwin in 1974 had sheltered in a
mangrove area. While providing protection for land on one side
the mangroves they all join with the sea on the other.
The Red Mangrove

mangrove, is usually found between high and low tide where its long
it a firm foot hold against wind and waves.
There are mangroves all
around Moreton Bay.
