To reestablish mangroves on the island of Bali, workers set out some 1,300 saplings an acre (0.4 hectares); nearly a thousand acres (400 hectares) have been planted. Indonesia’s forestry minister says that since the deadly 2004 tsunami, his people have come to value the protection coastal forests can provide.

Butterfly and Trees, Madidi National Park, Bolivia

Photograph by Joel Sartore

This Month in Photo of the Day: Nature

The locals say palm trees here grow legs and walk to find more sunlight. Standing on stilts, Madidi’s “walking” trees, at right, appear to move as their shadyside roots wither. The palms may need strong root structures to quickly reach optimum height.

This photograph was taken on assignment for "Madidi: Will Bolivia Drown Its New National Park?" in the March 2000 National Geographic.

当地居民说,这里的棕榈树会长出腿行走以获取更多的阳光。Madidi的会走路的棕榈树拥有大量气生根,如图右,因为背阴处的根枯萎而显示出移动的迹象。棕榈树可能需要强壮的根系结构来快速达到适宜的高度。

Gray Reef Shark, Kingman Reef

Photograph by Brian Skerry

This Month in Photo of the Day: Nature

Gray reef sharks and red snappers hover above a patch of table coral, waiting for prey fish to emerge. "They go after everything that moves," observed Enric Sala, a marine ecologist on Spain’s National Council for Scientific Research and a National Geographic fellow. Because of their abundance and the resulting competition for food, the sharks and snappers at Kingman Reef, Sala said, "are always on the verge of hunger." Kingman Reef is part of a chain of Pacific atolls and islands (called the Line Islands) that straddles the Equator south of Hawaii.

灰礁鲨和红笛鲷在一块平坦的珊瑚上方徘徊,等待猎物的出现。“它们跟随任何移动的物体。”西班牙国家科研理事会的海洋生态学家兼国家地理的研究员Enric Sala解释说。因为它们的巨大数量和由此带来的食物竞争,金曼礁的鲨鱼和笛鲷,Sala说,“总是处于饥饿的边缘”。金曼礁是一长串太平洋环礁和岛屿(即莱恩群岛)的一部分,这个群岛横跨了夏威夷以南的赤道。

Nestled 3,000 feet [900 meters] deep into Havasu Canyon lies the land of the Havasupai. The native Indians are named for the area, the people of the Blue Green. The area is known around the world for its blue waters and spectacular waterfalls. Havasu Creek, a year-round stream with incredible aquamarine water, flows by the village and descends another 1,400 feet [425 meters], passing over five waterfalls. Navajo Falls is the most secluded and is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful places on Earth.
