Christio vertelt over zijn ervaring in het veld: mangroves
Today we, @noele_jordan and I, continued shooting for Busi Taki.
The topic was #mangroves
Mangroves: a tree or shrub that grows in chiefly tropical coastal swamps that are flooded at high tide. Mangroves typically have numerous tangled roots above ground and form dense thickets.
It was very educational!🧠🧠
In the clip, don’t mind my hair 🤦🏾♂️, I explain that I learned from miss Pauline Kersten, our guide who is also working at the Mangrove Education Center Coronie, MECC, told me there are more than 90 species of mangroves around the world and in Suriname we have 6 species but we are focused on 3: the red, black and White mangrove.
She also told me that the large trees in the back are also mangroves.😯
If you ever are in Suriname and pass Coronie on your way to Nickerie or Paramaribo, please stop there for a short guided #tour, its fun!
