A new video The Beauty of Mangrove Forests highlights both the ecological importance of these vanishing forests and also their calming allure. The video was shot on Bimini Island in the Bahamas in a mangrove forest that is currently threatened.

Such a beautiful web of life in the mangroves. It just doesn't make sense to destroy it.

A very fascinating and informative video. It's a tragedy that over half the mangrove forests are gone thanks to man's greed and self centeredness.

Nothing is more serene than mangroves. Also, nothing is more exciting. Many times on the southwest coast of Florida, I have watched that great cradle of sea life. I have seen tiny fish, crabs, and shrimp, much too small for the ocean sheltered amount the mangrove's roots. Thank you, Angelika, for a splendid article on a subject that brought back to me many treasured memories.

What came to my mind was the old slogan "It's better in the Bahamas", um, perhaps not so much any more..
That video IS awesome,yes!

I couldn't see the video for some reason. It's a pity.
