Forest in saltwater. This landscape with mangrove was unfamiliar to me,because I have been living in middle and northern Japan which has no mangrove habitats. In the coastal area of Indonesia, however, this is familiar vegetation.
The roles of mangrove are multifaceted. First, the absorption of CO2 and release of oxygen. Recently, mangrove’s great capacity for carbon fixation and their inhibitory effect on global warming have come under the environmental spotlight. Secondly, deterrence of coastal erosion by waves. Mangrove served to mitigate tsunami damage at the time of the devastating 2004 earthquake in the Indian Ocean off Sumatra. Thirdly, the “bio-filter” effect of water purification through mangrove roots. And finally, its role as “ocean cradle” in which marine biodiversity (fish, shrimp, crab, shellfish and so on) is nurtured. People in the region have lived off of the blessings of the mangrove for centuries. However, in recent times this “marine forest” has been rapidly destroyed.
