Soundings: Kennedy Warne: The Tragic Demise of Mangroves
What's the connection between a platter of jumbo shrimp and murdered fishermen in Honduras, impoverished women in Ecuador, and disastrous hurricanes along the Gulf Coast? Mangroves. These saltwater forests of tangled roots and trunks are indispensable as natural storm barriers, home to exotic creatures, and a source of food and livelihood for millions of coastal dwellers. But now they are being destroyed to make way for shrimp farming and other development. Kennedy Warne, author of Let Them Eat Shrimp, explores the muddy battle zone of the mangrove forest and the true price of its destruction. Presented as part of the Soundings from Island Press series by Town Hall and Island Press through the Town Hall Center for Civic Life, in association with IslandWood and Elliott Bay Book Company.
