Middle Africa > Senegal > Mangroves



The Mangroves have been seen until recent times as an undervalued ecosystem. Historically classified "unhealthy wastelands" or "useless swamps" by development-eager authorities and businesses, the mangrove forests actually are one of the most fascinating resources in a country like Senegal
. The trees manage to live on the edge between flooding rivers, tidal waves intruding with salt water and the dry lands, where they create new land and environs rich in fish, birds, wood and other resources. Finally, their value is being discovered. One of the best and almost untouched mangrove systems is in the Saloum Delta protected area.
