Mangroves , and Mangrove ecosystems being impacted by climate change.

Mangroves provide a habitat to many marine species and acts like an estuary for many juvenile fish and other marine animals. They are also able to pull greenhouse gases from the atmosphere and store it in the soil. The carbon cycle and mangroves are closely connected. Mangroves are able to suck up a lot carbon from the atmosphere. That is the good news , but right now Mangroves face many different types of threats one including rising sea level which is caused by climate change.
