What is an Estuary?
Estuaries are the wide part of a river where it meets the sea. They are a place of transition and influenced by both rivers and oceans. Estuaries have tides and waves and are a silty brown from river sediments. The water in estuaries is neither fresh nor salty; it is brackish or mix of the two. Estuaries are home to a great variety of plant and animal life. They are a unique habitat. Estuaries play an important role in the environment. They filter dirt and pollution just like a sieve. Estuaries are under threat from pollution and overfishing.
