    Description

    Mangrove forests grow naturally along the ocean and lagoons on the islands of Kiribati. For centuries mangroves have provided wood for fuel, posts, poles, boats, houses, fences, walls, and furniture, and have been used to stake fish traps, to cultivate seaweed, and to dye and preserve canoe sails and clothing. Mangrove leaves and flowers are used in garlands and leis.
