2. Mangroves are water filters for humans' land bases as are forests the world's lungs for humans.

3. If you get a chance to come down to Keys

I highly recommend visiting as many of the state parks as you can.
They are really gorgeous.

4. I live about 18 miles away from a small mangrove swamp... At least I think it is still there.

I used to work in the area, but haven't been there since the early 90s. Very important eco system.

5. Very important indeed

It's basically where most of the fish that live on the reefs hide from predators until they're big enough to venture out.
