A COASTAL TREASURE

INTRODUCTION

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 in their ability to sequester high amounts of CO2, improve coastal water quality by acting as natural filters of water pollutants, and host a wide variety of flora and fauna. Known in Chinese as 紅樹林 (red forest), mangroves are quite 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 various platforms – this webpage, the mangroves exhibition, guided field visits and other related materials/activities, we aim to raise community awareness and curiosity and encourage everyone to cherish, protect and conserve this valuable habitat.

Join us for an exploration of this local coastal treasure and uncover the unique world of mangroves!

For more information regarding the mangroves project, please contact Karen Araño Tagulao at karentaguao@usj.edu.mo.
