Walk in a Mangrove Forest

Mangroves have never quite decided to be in the water or right above it. These towering trees have aerial roots that look like the world’s most delicate architecture. And what far too many places figured out far too late is that mangroves are what hold islands together: They are not only important for marine and land life but also create a barrier that helps protect the shoreline from hurricanes. Get up close and personal with a walk through Nouméa’s mangrove forest.
