Photo by @cristinamittermeier// An American crocodile greets me in the mangroves of the Gardens of the Queens, Cuba. As one of the top predators in Cuba’s mangrove forest, his presence is a great indication of a healthy and abundant ecosystem. With a little protection, all coral reef and tidal swamp ecosystems can be this healthy, and my goal is to continue shining a light on ways in which we can protect the world's last coral reef ecosystems.
