From sharks in seagrass to manatees in mangroves, we’ve found large marine species in some surprising places
When we think of mangrove forests, seagrass meadows and saltmarshes, we don’t immediately think of shark habitats. But the first global review of links between large marine animals (megafauna) and coastal wetlands is challenging this view – and how we might respond to the biodiversity crisis.
Mangrove forests, seagrass meadows and saltmarshes support rich biodiversity, underpin the livelihoods of more than a billion people worldwide, store carbon, and protect us from extreme weather events.
Mangrove forests, seagrass meadows and saltmarshes are the three key vegetated habitats found in coastal wetlands.
