Development

Around our cities and towns our sea front and river banks are important and expensive areas of land. In the past, mangroves have been cleared to make way for mariners, access to the sea or rivers, ports and for recreational areas.

In other countries a lot of land reclamation has devastated mangroves. In Australia the development of marina waterfront housing developments threaten mangroves in the local rivers, creeks and along the coast.
