|Huraa Mangrove Area|
It is an embayment mangrove in which the mangrove vegetation encircles a ‘bay’ that is subjected to daily tidal flushing. ‘island-like’ vegetation clumps are also found within the bay. The water level of the water-body found in the middle of the mangrove is closely related to the tidal regimes and movement of water to and from the pond takes place through a narrow channel that connects mangrove to the open sea.
SPECIAL FEATURES: Unique vegetation and a resting place for some protected birds. Ten species of plants are found in the Huraa mangrove, these include four species of true mangroves and five mangrove associate plants
