"Mangroves play a biiigggg role in the ecosystem -- they are essential for flood protection and water quality maintenance, nursery habitats to umpteen species, and they help sustain fisheries. They’re also invaluable and ultra effective carbon sinks, and one of the strongest counter forces we have against the next big thing CLIMATE CHANGE.

Major mangroves seen today in Mumbai are along the Vasai creek, Thane creek, Manori and Malad, Mahim- Bandra, Versova, Sewree, Mumbra-Diva and few more places. But Mumbai's mangroves are now in danger.

And so I'm illustrating with a purpose."
