World Earth Day: Mangrove Awareness Activities

World Earth Day is celebrated to support environment protection and its theme this year is Environmental and Climate Literacy. United Way Mumbai aimed to throw a spotlight on this by conducting Mangrove Awareness and Mangrove Sapling making sessions to conserve and restore the mangrove cover in Mumbai.

United Way Mumbai was invited to conduct the World Earth Day Mangroves Awareness sessions in the recently unveiled, state-of-the-art Coastal and Marine Biodiversity Centre (CMBC), in Airoli before the centre was unveiled to the public. The awareness session was accompanied by a mangrove sapling making session, in which 500 saplings were made by the students of N.M.M.C School, Airoli to commemorate World Earth day and highlight the importance of the mangrove habitat.
