Off the Beaten Path - Bonaire's Mangroves Short Clip

The mangrove forest of Bonaire's Lac Bay is one of the most important habitats on the island. Mangroves are a life blood of the reef as they create a safe habitat for small fish to mature before venturing out to the open sea. Also, with climate change mangroves are one of the most efficient consumers of CO2.

In this new installment of our Off the Beaten Path track we jump in, with our camera, to find an open channel on our own and without a guide. What we find is stunning: Upside down jellyfish; oysters; colorful sponges, and many small fish you typically see, in larger form, out on the reef. Filming this area is a challenge with currents and silted out water. It can be a cinematographer's nightmare which is why most video of mangroves is above the water. But, we are explorer's and got off that beaten path to give you a rare view from below. Please enjoy a place you might not ever think to look when visiting the island.
