Guinean mangroves

WWF Abstract

Visit a mangrove ecoregion and you’ll be on the edge of ocean and land--in a nursery where millions of creatures begin their lives and that others use as a stopover on their migratory journeys. Mangroves grow in rivers and estuaries near the ocean, where the land is fairly flat and tides are high enough to penetrate the land’s interior.
