Aboriginal use of mangroves

There are many uses of mangroves. They could be cooked for food, used for medicine or to made into tools.

This website shows the aboriginal mangrove use.

Most of the species listed could be found in Singapore shore too. However, the application of the medical use of mangrove on the website was not encouraged. Please don’t try that at home.

Anyway, some extra information for food use, “cooking with mangroves” recipe! Cool!

But…for your information, collection of mangrove propagules in Singapore nature reserves is illegal. Quote my Singaporean friend’s word, “like that, got money also cannot eat lah!”
