Mangrove ecosystem – their importance, adaptation and role We conducted slide show about wetlands and their importance with special reference to Mangrove. Since this village is located on west coast of Maharashtra (India) students have seen the mangroves. Through the slide show we explained them about role of mangroves and their adaptations such as pneumatophores, stilt roots, viviparous germination, etc. We also explained about World Wetland Day and its this year’s theme. Total of 114 students attended the slide show. Their active participation in the form of questions made it interactive.
