Lesson script:

Mangrove swamps are communities of mangrove trees located in tropical or subtropical coastal areas because they cannot tolerate cold temperatures. In Vietnam, mangroves are common in the South, especially in the Mekong Delta.

Mangrove trees are sometimes called “survivors,” because they have special roots that grow out of the water, in hot conditions, and in brackish water where there is high salinity and low oxygen. Each mangrove tree has a filtration system to protect it from sea salt intrusion, along with a specialised root system that allows the tree to breathe in mud or during high tide.

Mangroves also have an extremely diverse ecosystem. They are home to many wildlife species, such as crocodiles, birds, tigers, deer, monkeys, and bees. Many migratory birds depend on mangroves, including cranes, pelicans, and storks. The area under the complex network of mangrove roots is also a unique habitat – a quiet, safe environment for the children of many animals. Mud shrimp and lobster use the mud below the mangroves to build houses, and mangrove crabs eat the trees’ leaves, which also add nutrients to the mud, becoming a food source for many other bottom-dwelling creatures.

Lesson script:

Mangroves act as green lungs to filter carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere. In a report by a team of professors from the Centre for International Forestry Research, mangroves store five times more carbon per square kilometre than other forests. Indonesia has the largest area of mangroves in the world, and the quantity of CO2 that those forests can absorb is equivalent to the CO2 emissions from all the country’s cars. Not only that, mangroves help remove excess nutrients, sediment, and pollutants from oceans and rivers. They thus help to purify water for surrounding ecosystems through complex biochemical processes – breaking down, metabolizing, and absorbing toxic substances.

Mangroves protect land by reducing coastal erosion and defend people, buildings, and fields from natural disasters, such as typhoons, floods, and tsunamis. The trunks, branches, and roots of mangroves act as barriers that reduce the effects of waves, flooding, and strong winds, while helping to maintain the land area by retaining and binding appropriate materials. If that weren’t enough, mangroves provide jobs for people living in the region, including those in the tourism industry who benefit from visitors thrilled by the unique surroundings.
