Mangroves have been widely reported as reducing deaths and damage caused by the Indian Ocean tsunami. Consequently, many organizations are advocating the use of mangroves as a natural barrier against future tsunamis. For example, the World Conservation Union is promoting “Mangroves for the Future,” a program highlighted in the article “A Rescue Effort for Tsunami-Ravaged Mangrove Forests” (20 Oct. 2006, p. 404). Discussions to date have concentrated on how to make these replanting programs successful (1). A far more important consideration is whether they will work.
