To the casual eye, mangroves do not look like any other forests, but they thrive in this amphibious environment. Every living being is a product of the environment, moulded by intricate events throughout its evolutionary history. Nature endows mangrove communities with ingenious adaptations for success. As such, many associated life forms have found a niche in the mangroves.
Of the 340,000 hectares of mangroves in Sabah, over 90% are still largely intact, and most of these areas are under Sabah Forestry Department. Realizing that mangroves are important natural resources, efforts have been made to manage them in accordance with the principles of conservation and sustainable use.
