I've always found solace being near water. It fills me up in some way. Living in Saint Petersburg, FL the last few years has brought me so much joy. After work you will often find me swimming laps in the soothing turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico. This midwest transplant has learned a lot about our delicate coastal ecosystem.
Mangroves offer a huge protection from coastal flooding and to the many sea creatures that call them home. These protectors also are essential to maintaining water quality. There dense network of roots and surrounding vegetation filter and trap sediments, heavy metals, and other pollutants.
Unfortunately, many coastal areas are removing mangroves. Which puts us at risk for flooding during storms, not to mention removing the natural filtration system these plants offer. Let's wake up to the many ways nature works for our benefit.
