Director: Abdul Rafia Fazili | Producer: Mike H Pandey
Focus Years: 2012 | Country: India
Mangroves are among the oldest and most productive wetland forests of our planet. Found in the intertidal zone, they uniquely adapted to survive highly saline and anoxic species. They are ideal habitats for many terrestrial and marine species, carbon sinks and natural barriers against storm surges and coastal erosion. Mangroves provide invaluable services but have been declining worldwide as a result of anthropogenic and other threats.
"Mangroves â€“ Guardians of the Coast" showcases the fascinating web of life that surrounds these tidal forests. The movie highlights the unique collaboration between governments, regional and local institutions, NGOs and local communities in their efforts to save these vulnerable ecosystems and restore them to their former glory.
