Mangroves - A Quick Look

 Today we looked at Mangroves, those plants that live in the brackish water of the very important ecosystem.
After visiting  mangrove ecosystem we recalled what we had read and seen and discussed the following...
-what are they, how do they survive in salt water?
- where are they found?
- what do they do?
- what food chains and food webs in this ecosystem?
- what threatens a mangrove ecosystem?
 The boys played with different food chains and we took items away and worked out how this would affect the system...

I used some of these resources from Marine Parks WA and we watched a few videos on mangroves on the net.
Next we move on to the Seagrasses and we have some of those local to us also  which is fantastic.
