Mangroves on the move

If you look to the sand at your feet when you are out walking the tidal flats, you'll notice that the local mangroves have set their seeds which is now floating about.
Tragically few take root and those that do, struggle to survive.
While the beachfront that now is occupied by sea walls has probably been without mangrove cover for a long (as old photographs suggest), we really do need the stands at the northern and southern sections of beach to hold our  terrain in place.
Otherwise the widest section of Moreton Bay under prevailing south or north easterly winds reaches our shore with full impact.
So respect the local mangroves. We need them.
