"Mangroves act as natural buffers against coastal erosion and flooding. These ecosystems play a very important part in coastal protection, habitat, food and biodiversity.
Rapid developments like industrialisation and pollution has resulted into degradation of mangroves. With sea level rise inevitable, Mumbai's mangroves are more important now than ever.
We need to see and value mangroves which are the spirit of Mumbai. This can lead to an increased commitment to conserve and restore these amazing system.💚"
