Tropical wetlands: Mangroves and peatlands in peril

Tropical wetlands—chiefly mangrove and peat forests—are critically important for protecting coastlines, nourishing wildlife and livelihoods, and mitigating climate change. For example, coastal mangrove forests store three times the amount of carbon of land-based tropical forests. Tropical peat forests, meanwhile, are home to some of the most iconic—and endangered—animals on Earth, including orangutans, tigers and rhinos.
