$143.5 billion: That’s what it would cost if all the mangroves on Earth were wiped out

But the lives of the endangered animals you might encounter in a mangrove—like the uniquely striped Bengal tiger—are priceless. In our latest McKinsey for Kids edition, we explore nature’s worth, take a look at where and how these animals live, and why that’s crucial in understanding how to save them.

We strive to provide individuals with disabilities equal access to our website. If you would like information about this content we will be happy to work with you. Please email us at:
