Mangrove forests protect the coast from erosion while trapping sediments in water flowing off the land,
helping to create clear blue coastal waters. As we rode in a little boat along the Sebung River,
the lifestyle of those who live here seemed simple and peaceful.
Monkeys and snakes are the main occupants of this forest. While the monkeys refused
to stay still long enough for me to get a picture of them, the snakes were more than happy to oblige…
to my dismay!
