El Salvador: I live from the mangrove forest

This testimony shows how people living near a mangrove forest in El Salvador depend on this natural resource for their livelihoods and care for the biodiversity of their fragile ecosystem. Mangrove forests, such as this one of La Tirana in the coast of El Salvador, are part of a complex ecosystem that protects coastlines from erosion and filters coastal waters.
