Shorekeepers of Mumbai

Overview

 

Did you know? Mangroves protect Mumbai's precious land from sea. They ensure the sea doesn't encroach upon the space meant for us human beings. They are also only plants that survive in sea water and that mangrove is not one species of plant but indeed a community of several plant species.
