How does sea level rise and other threats affect our mangroves? What is the importance of mangroves?

Dr Dan Friess from the Department of Geography, the National University of Singapore will share more with us in his talk on "Mangroves of NorthWest Singapore - their threats and management".

Mangroves are a unique ecosystem that provide a multitude of ecosystem and livelihood services, though are also an ecosystem in rapid decline. This talk will describe the physical (waves, sea level rise, sediment supply), ecological (habitat connectivity) and human (land reclamation) tipping points to a stable mangrove system, using the case studies of Sungei Buloh and Mandai mangrove, NW Singapore.

Great opportunity for those who missed Dan's previous Mangrove talk at Sungei Buloh.
