Tropical Rainforests and Mangroves

This clip considers the functions or both rainforests and mangroves in the environment. The importance of rainforests as water catchment, climate regulator, green lungs of the earth, carbon store and biodiversity hotspot are all considered. We then look at how mangroves protect coasts from cyclones, waves and floods, clean our water, store carbon and create biodiversity hot spots including important habitats for nurseries for the world's fish stocks. Filmed in a variety of rainforest and mangrove environments, including the Amazon and Borneo rainforest and the Sundarban mangroves.
