Mangroves are trees that grow in salt or fresh water. The Mangroves have special seeds. Magroves are special because they provide food for sea creatures. Mangroves are self seeding.Mangroves feed fish and those fish provide food for humans.Mangroves trap sediment and help keep the water clean. There are a variety of animals that live in the Mangroves including Mudskippers. The mangroves are important because they stop the sediment from dirtying the ocean and they provide a home for fish.
Mangroves look like small trees except that they grow in the sea. Mangroves are a very helpful plants because they provide a home for sea creatures, food for insects and sea creatures as well. Did you know their roots that are filled with oxygen help us breathe.
Mangroves live in clean water or salty water which is called an estuary. They also need sunlight so they can grow. While they are growing, they need space so they don't interfere with the others.
Mangroves provide food , a home and their prop roots give us oxygen to breathe through. They have special fruit for snails and other species.
There are many sea creatures that live there: mud crabs, mud skippers, crabs and others.
Other animals live there as well: birds, butterflies and many more.
Mangroves are important because if they weren't invented then sea creatures wouldn't have a home, some food humans use their prop roots for oxygen to breathe.
I think mangroves are very important and they should not die. They are important, if they weren't there we won't have any oxygen to breath through.
