Why mangroves matter
MetadataShow full item record
Mangroves support the natural food chain by forming a link between land and sea. They serve as the sanctuary of both aquatic and terrestrial wildlife while acting as frontline guardians of coastal communities against storm surges. Mangroves help a great deal in the propagation of fish and other fishery products because the mangrove ecosystem is a part of their habitat. With this in mind, Metro Pacific Investments Corp. has put up under the umbrella of the foundation’s environmental program called Shore it Up, its Mangrove Propagation/ Protection and Information Centers in Alaminos, Pangasinan and Del Carmen, Siargao, Surigao del Norte. These facilities serve as centers for the protection and propagation of mangrove trees in coastal estuaries.
