mangroves

If all rivers lead to the ocean, estuaries are where those waters meet. Estuaries are found in every climate at every latitude, anywhere fresh water meets the ocean...at the end of rivers in coastal plains, much like the Chesapeake Bay; in fjords, for which Norway, Greenland, and New Zealand are known; around sandbars, like the North Carolina Outer Banks, and in tectonic areas like the San Francisco Bay.

Mangroves are an especially crucial part of the marine ecosystem in tropical and subtropical estuaries, serving as nurseries for baby sea animals. The largest mangroves forests can be found in Indonesia, Brazil, Australia, Nigeria, and Mexico. They also call the tidal coasts of South Florida home. While they’re one of the most productive ecosystems in the world, mangrove forests also are one of the most threatened. Unless we take drastic and immediate action to protect and restore mangroves, it’s estimated that we’ll lose these critical ecosystems by 2100.

The world would be a very different place without mangroves and estuaries. To help protect these important ecosystems from the effects of ocean pollution, we have captains and crews cleaning the ocean and coastlines, including mangrove forests, seven days a week. By purchasing the Limited Edition Marine Nursery Bracelet, you’ll pull a pound of trash while helping protect and restore the mangrove forests and estuaries that many baby sea animals call home.
