Have you ever heard of mudflats, salt marshes, mangrove forests, seagrass beds, and coral reefs? They are all habitats that can make or break your coastline. They are also known as Living Shorelines and they are being slowly added back to previously developed areas where the coastlines have been hardened by concrete walls or gravel.

Today's episode is dedicated to Living Shorelines and showing you the benefits of putting back natural areas. It's also a great introduction to the next episode where I speak with Dr. Edie Widder from Team ORCA, where we discuss how living shorelines can help Florida's coastline and algal problem.
