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 20 ha of degraded wetlands at Karave, Navi Mumbai. The plan is to plant 1,00,000 mangroves in this land, of which 50,000 have been planted as of March '18.
