  1. Mangroves forest of South Asia
    Mangrove forests can be found all over the world, there are more than 50 species of mangroves and some of which are endangered. The reddish root mangroves are called the walking trees which I saw on my recent visit to Karachi, Pakistan in the area of delta Sind. I have noticed that the water capacity is low and the mangroves aren’t growing. These walking trees are very important to our ecosystem. Many animals find shelter in the trees and are the nesting areas for millions of coastal birds such as Pelicans , black kites, roseate, Eagles and many migratory birds. They provide food resources such as snook, snapper tarpon, jack,sheepshead, red drum, oyster and shrimps. The increased marine water pollution and illegal harvesting of mangroves is putting a serious threats on the ecosystem. During winters, a huge number of migratory birds come and nest in these forests to breed. Earlier, various bird species like ospreys, wood storks, a variety of herons and egrets, bald eagles, cormorants, brown pelicans, ibis and roseate spoonbills, etc. used to visit the mangroves on a yearly basis. However, over the past few years, the number of guest birds has greatly decreased because of the destruction of these forests in Pakistan.
    The walking trees on the surface of the oceans are vital for environmental reasons as well as for the endangered migrating birds who rest on them yearly. Packed with life, mangroves provide a natural habitat to a huge number of micro organisms, insects and snakes, birds and various mammals. Not only this, these forests provide a physical breeding ground to different sea creatures like fish, crabs and shrimps and mollusk species. These fisheries make up an indispensable source of food for thousands of coastal communities around the world. In Pakistan, these forests provide a main source of income to local fishermen.

    The salty water walking tress are extremely important to myself with American Minorities Alliance members with the People Party of Connecticut and would like bring this issue to the UNEP with United States Department of Environmental protection along with UK Department for Environment Food & Rural affairs agencies.
