Mangroves and seagrass meadows aren't as majestic as rainforests but they are just as important. “Globally, vegetated coastal ecosystems are being lost twice as fast as tropical rainforests despite covering a fraction of the area.” #ActOnClimate

ICYMI - and now with link to paper added - new research shows Australia's massive blue carbon stores are leaking 3m tonnes a year
Newly estimated CO2 emissions from Vegetated Coastal Ecosystems adds 12–21% to land use change emissions in Australia. It shows the potential for conservation & restoration for reducing GHG emissions
