3s a Union: The Sea, The Surge & The Mangroves: Helping Us Live on the Edge

A breathtaking view of the lagoon surrounded by mangrove forest in Occidental Mindoro popularly known as the Apo Reef National Park. Mangroves are locally known as bakawan and usually grow in tropical coastal swamps. With the effects of climate change becoming highly pronounced, mangroves help stabilize the coastline by dissipating wave energy, thereby protecting our coastal areas from storm surge.

I dedicate this photo to my son Zen which marks his 15th birthday and coincides with the worldwide celebration of the International Day of the Forests every March 21st.
