Sept. 4, Nat Geo TV premieres “Mangroves of the Maya World”
The secret life of the “Mangroves of the Maya World” will be revealed in a documentary made by National Geographic Channel in a production filmed in Quintana Roo State, where #Tulum is, Campeche State and the State of Yucatan, in the Yucatan Peninsula. The film will be premiered on Sunday Sept. 4 on Nat Geo Wild and Nat Geo.
Alejandro Palma and documentarist Agata Lanz explored deep into the mangroves to exhibit the underworld of this fascinating ecosystem that extends throughout Campeche, Quintana Roo and Yucatán.
The documentary was recorded using 4K technology to show the hidden beauty of the mangroves, an ecosystem threatened by human activity and vital for the preservation of numerous animal species such as the manatee, the whale-shark, the flamingo and some types of corals.
The role of this habitat is fundamental for the subsistence of other ecosystems, basically because it prevents the erosion of the land, protects the coasts from the winds and tides, and purifies the water that goes into the ocean.
