Caption: Dying mangrove. Dying mangrove trees in Chwaka Bay, Zanzibar, Tanzania. Mangroves are salt-tolerant plants (halophytes) that contain a complex salt filtration system and complex root system to cope with salt water immersion and wave action. They are under threat from the effects of climate change, including rising sea levels, ocean acidification and increased wave action due to the death of coral reefs.
