Mangroves have many
friends. These people understand the importance of mangroves. Every person who
likes fishing should be a friend of mangroves because most of the fish they
want to catch spent part of their life in mangroves.
Mangroves in Australia are
nearly always on public land. Government authorities should be protecting them.
But there are many people who think that mangroves are smelly and yucky and
have not learnt to respect these important ecosystems.
