MANGROVES, SHMANGROVES — WHAT’S SO COOL ABOUT THEM?
Like a green curtain, lush mangroves crowd the shore along Jupiter Inlet’s waterways.

But these plants do far more than block the view of the land.
- The cigar-shaped mangrove seeds may float for more than a year before taking root in the sand.
- Mangroves are tough. Like cactus, they hoard fresh water in their leaves to survive in dry times.
- Mangroves defend of our shorelines. The thick roots hold the land in place during hurricanes. They reduce erosion
- Mangroves promote coral reefs. Young corals grow in the mangrove roots
- Mangroves support Florida’s recreational fishing. Barracuda, tarpon, snook and other juvenile fish shelter among mangrove roots. As adults, they head out into the open ocean
- Mangroves boost water quality. They absorb nutrients from runoff that might otherwise cause harmful algal blooms offshore, such as the killing off of seagrass in the Indian River.
