Mangrove forests are one of the most valuable ecosystems on earth and an important natural coastal treasure. They protect our coastlines from rising sea levels and extreme weather events, help mitigate climate change, improve coastal water quality, and host a wide variety of flora and fauna. Known in Chinese as紅樹林 (red forest), mangroves are unique, living along with intertidal and estuarine environments, where the land meets the sea.

Macao is home to a thriving mangrove forest that spans approximately 4km of the Taipa-Cotai coastline. Through scientific display boards, photographs, films, and interactive tank models, this exhibition will showcase the local mangroves ecosystem that makes up an essential part of Macao’s natural environment. Moreover, mangroves artwork pieces from various local school students will also be on display. The exhibition, complemented by public talks and guided field visits to the local mangroves sites, aims to raise community awareness and curiosity, and encourage people to cherish this valuable habitat.
