102-year old ship is a floating forest off the coast of Sydney

This incredible 102-year-old floating forest is the result of 40 years of mangrove tree growth in Homebush Bay, Sydney. The SS Aryfield is an abandoned ship used in WWII that was left in the bay to deteriorate after the ship wrecking yard closed down. The massive ship’s rusty hull is now home to lush vegetation, including full-grown mangrove trees. What an incredible sight.
