1) Grow on the Sea
Ordinary trees cannot survive on the sea. Because moisture is taken away by the act of salt in the sea. However, mangrove trees can live in the sea. Nowadays, Universities and corporations are researching and developing new water purification techniques to study the mangroves.
2) The secret of the mangrove tree rooted in the mud
In general, trees can not live in mud, tidal flats. The reason is that the particles of mud are so small and dense that there is very little amount of air. However, this tree could receive enough oxygen by exposing out the roots that should be in the ground. If you look at the root photo below.
3) Draining out the salt
If you look at below pic, you could see traces of white dots on the leaves. Its Salt. Because we live in the sea, It can’t help but be absorbed by large amounts of salt in the sea. When the salt increases, the metabolism can’t work properly, To prevent this, salt is drained from leaves.
4) Excellent purifying function and making a land
From the photo, the root surfaces are rough. but it makes a great, amazing miracle to accumulate the earth and purifies water. Usually the roots in the ground are white and the outer surface is not very rough. This rough surface filters out, accumulating floats in the water. After many years, it becomes mud and creates land. Human technology cultivation destroys nature, but nature’s one enriches the nature eco-system
5 Why mangrove trees became famous
Due to the 2004 tsunami, Southeast Asian countries (about 11 countries) got a major damage (210,000 to 280,000 deaths). Below is a picture of the damage at that time. You’ll feel the power of Tsunami. Malaysia with rich mangrove forests would not get a big disaster of Tsunami. After the 2004 Tsunami, globally many people pay attention to it and studying mangrove tree
6) Mangrove forests enriching nature ecosystem
Many fishes are like to gathering around the mangrove roots to eat and spawning. Due to the flow water speed is slow and many things to eat. Therefore, people live around there also could catch many fish to live. The life in the pic below are living in the mangrove forest.
7) Huge carbon storage, air purifier
It has excellent blue carbon ability. Carbon storage capacity is 4.4 times than the pine trees and 2.2 times that of lily trees. One hectare of mangrove forest absorbs 34 tons of carbon each year. If it is the size of five hundred hectares, it absorbs at least 15000 tons of carbon. Southeast Asian countries that have preserved mangrove forests have very favorable conditions for carbon emissions. Korea is also studying mangrove tree in Jeju.
8) Mangrove Tour
There are mangrove forests all over Southeast Asia, which have become a tourist resource and attract many tourists. It is one of the famous Langkawi Mangrove Tour in Malaysia. The Langkawi private mangrove tour is very popular for various nature course.

9) Grow the seed on the tree
Because it inhabits the warm sea coast, if seeds threw out on the sea, they will soon die. Seeds are feed & grow on the tree. After the seed growing well, It starts the voyage of the Sea. If it was lucky, directly grounded.
10) Armed with poison
The leaves that drain the salt are a precious part and should not be eaten by animals. The leaves also play an important role in the skin draining the salt. That is why leaves are a very important part of survival. To protect the leaves from animals, other trees have developed thorns, but these trees contain a strong poison in the leaves.
11) Mangrove tree scholar Jurzenne Primavera
Before the 2004 tsunami, about 70% of Southeast Asia’s mangrove forests were destroyed. The main cause was the shrimp farm. Around 70 years ago, Philippine fisheries scholar Zrgen Primavera published a paper on shrimp farming to help poor fishing people, which plays a major role in the flourishing of shrimp farming in Southeast Asia. And after the tsunami, nature was destroyed by her own thesis and felt so sad. From that, She had a decision to studying and introduce the goods of it to people
12) Mangrove life
It is said that mangroves grow into adult trees for about 15 years. The exact evidence for lifespan could not be found. The knowledge gained through Youtuve is said to be at least 200 years old. And there are more than 80 species.
12) Malaysia Kota Kinabalu Fire-fly (Mangrove) Tour
Kota Kinabalu Firefly mangrove tour is also popular in Malaysia. If you’re travelling to Malaysia, a cheap group tour is not bad, but I like to recommend a private tour and a jungle tour. It’s nice to offer a new nature view as well as a new window of thought.
