Saibai island large avicennia marina

Torres Strait MangroveWatch Team with large Avicennia Marina

The Torres Strait MangroveWatch team on Saibai Island have located large Avicennia marina trees scattered within mangrove areas on the western end of the island.

There are at least 100 trees of this size at this location. Their age you corresponds with local stories of when there was a village nearby at Surum. These trees were used for protection and look out points for PNG raiders and have been the highest trees on Saibai at location at the time.

Torres Strait MangroveWatch plan to GPS these trees next dry season as it is a significant cultural site and an important ecological site for these species.
