ABSTRACT 摘要

Mangrove forests are one of the most valuable ecosystems on earth and an important natural coastal treasure.
They protect our coastlines from rising sea levels and extreme weather events, help mitigate climate change, improve coastal water quality, and host a wide variety of flora and fauna. Known in Chinese as 紅樹林 (red forest), mangroves are unique, living along intertidal and estuarine environments, where the land meets the sea.

Macao is home to a thriving mangrove forest that spans approximately 4km of the Taipa-Cotai coastline.
Through scientific display boards, photographs, films, and interactive tank models, this exhibition will showcase the local mangroves ecosystem that makes up an essential part of Macao’s natural environment.   Moreover, mangroves artwork pieces from various local school students will also be on display. The exhibition, complemented by public talks and guided field visits to the local mangroves sites, aims to raise community awareness and curiosity, and encourage people to cherish this valuable habitat.

紅樹林是地球上最有價值的生態系統之一,也是重要的天然海岸瑰寶。它們保護我們的海岸線免受海平面上升和極端天氣帶來的影響,有助於緩和氣候變化,改善沿海水質,同時也為各種各樣動植物提供栖息的地方。這些獨特的紅樹林生活在潮間帶和河口中——陸地與海洋的相接處。

澳門擁有一片約4公里長,橫跨路氹海岸線的繁華紅樹林 。這個展覽將透過科學展示板、照片、影片和互動模型,把構成澳門自然環境不可或缺的紅樹林呈現給大眾。與此同時,這裏還會展出由本地學生制作的紅樹林藝術作品。透過本展覽,輔以公眾演講和紅樹林的參觀活動,我們希望能提高大眾對紅樹林的認識和好奇心,鼓勵人們珍惜這一片珍貴的棲息地。
