    Happy #WorldWetlandsDay! For the past 10 years, the Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation has worked to conserve and restore mangrove forests in the Caribbean. Our Mangrove Education & Restoration program works with high school students in #Jamaica and #TheBahamas to teach them about mangroves and help them restore a mangrove forest in their community. One aspect of this program is that we take students on a field trip into the mangrove forest where we can show them first-hand what the forest is like and teach them about mangroves and their importance to the coastal marine ecosystem and their community. Here, our Education Director, Amy Heemsoth, explains the benefits of the odd root structure mangroves have and how it helps them live in the harsh environment along the coast. Visit our website to learn more about our mangrove programs, the Jamaican Awareness of Mangroves in Nature (J.A.M.I.N.) and Bahamas Awareness of Mangroves (B.A.M.): https://www.livingoceansfoundation.org/education/mangrove-education-and-restoration/ ...
