Mission Mangroves

In 2015, United Way Mumbai (UWM) launched the Mission Mangroves campaign, with the aim to restore Mumbai's depleted mangrove cover, which serves as a protective shield from natural disasters like floods, cyclones, tsunamis, etc. We have partnered with the Mangrove Cell of the State Forest Department and the Mangrove and Marine Biodiversity Conservation Foundation to adopt 30 ha of degraded wetlands at Karave, and Khopar Khairane in Navi Mumbai and in Vikhroli. The plan was to plant 1,00,000 mangroves on this land; as of February 2021, we have greened 33 hectares of wetlands, planting 1,27,625 mangrove saplings.
