Coastal mangrove forests store more carbon than almost any other forest on Earth

A team at the U.S. forest services and some university scientists looked at 25 mangroves and found that these coastal forests are super important holders of carbon. Carbon emissions play a big part in global warming, by protecting trees that store it up we can help keep the planet cool!

  1. Forests are so cool. They do so much to help the environment. why are we cutting them down? I don’t understand how people expect their childrne and grand children to live if we are destorying the planet so that cant.

  2. Keep the planet cool!
    Dont destroy, or there won’t be a earth much longer!
    Help the earth.
    Help the future.

  3. I have a poem about the world:

    If all the animals-
    that share the Earth with us,
    dissapeared from the world,
    the beautiful surface.
    What if the species died?
    Would you be feeling blue?
    We would, being Earthrangers!
    We’re not sure about you.

    But if you stand for evrything,
    that is pure, that is good, that is right!
    Join us on our quest, to save creatures of day and night!
