Adding to the importance of this ecosystem is a new study, which has highlighted the economic benefits that mangrove restoration and conservation may yield in the long term.
The impact of climate change coupled with a business-as-usual approach to things is being felt across the world through the worsening of ‘earth’s vital signs'.
While in the oceans, microplastics also serve as a base of bacterial growth, most of which are harmful to other animals. The bacteria form a biofilm over the microplastics and colonise them.

A study suggests that an increase in levels of seas can lead to coastal areas of the sea as well as storm drains to be contaminated with wastewater.
To determine the rise in sea levels, it is currently assumed that icebergs melt at a uniform pace. However, that may not be the case.
