They soon grow into small seedlings which are alternately inundated and exposed by the tides. If silt gets into the estuary because of poor management of the catchment, some of this silt is trapped by mangroves and encourages further mangrove expansion. This is the mangroves’ response to human abuses of the catchment – nature trying to repair the damage.
