    Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation shared Friends of the Environment's post.

    Happy #WorldWetlandsDay ! Mangrove wetlands are one of the most important habitats in The Bahamas for a number of reasons:
    •They provide a nursery ground for juvenile and adult fish and invertebrates, especially crucial species such as Nassau Grouper and spiny lobster
    •They stabilize the coastline by trapping sediment in their root systems, which prevents erosion
    •They act as huge “carbon sinks”, storing carbon in their roots, leaves and branches, which can help fight climate change
    ...just to name a few! Let’s do our part and use our #MangroveManners to protect these wetlands for future generations on land and at sea.

    GYOR has partnered with the Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation and the International Coral Reef Initiative to print a poster for use on Guam to showcase the beauty and value of coral reefs, on our island and around the world. This poster features artwork created by 16-year-old Selena Yang from California, the first place high school winner of the Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation's 2018 Science Without Borders® Challenge. Her piece is titled "The Last Coral Reef." Attend our GYOR End of the Year Celebration on December 6th to have a chance to win one of these beautiful posters!

    The Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation’s Science Without Borders® Challenge is an international art competition that engages students to promote the need to preserve, protect, and restore the world’s ocean and aquatic resources. This annual contest was created to get students and teachers interested in ocean conservation through various forms of art. The Foundation partnered with the International Coral Reef Initiative (ICRI) to implement the 2018 Science Without Borders® Challenge to celebrate the International Year of the Reef (IYOR). The theme, “Why Coral Reefs Matter,” was chosen to increase awareness and understanding about the importance of coral reefs.

    As part of #NationalEstuariesWeek, we are celebrating the importance of mangroves. Mangroves serve many functions such as producing oxygen and reducing the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere; providing coastal protection from storms and hurricanes; and providing food, habitat, substrate, nursery and breeding grounds for many different organisms including numerous endangered and commercially important species. Watch our video about mangroves to learn more. https://youtu.be/cwTZhyA57mAWelcome to the mangrove forest, where the daily rhythm of the tides sets the pace. These coastal wetlands create a sanctuary for an extraordinary range of cr... ... See MoreSee Less
