Summary
In Let Them Eat Shrimp, Kennedy Warne tells the stories of communities and individuals around the world that are affected by the loss of mangrove forests
Summary
Based in New Zealand, Warne is a journalist and founding editor of New Zealand Geographic. He offers an extended narrative describing what he learned as he investigated the profound importance of mangrove forests to the ecological balance of the areas near the ocean where they are located, and to the people who depend on that ecosystem. The story involves the impact of shrimp aquaculture and massive coastal development--both of which devastate these "rainforests of the sea" and disable their mitigation of climate change through carbon storage as well as the protection they give coastlines in the event of tsunamis.
