Wetlands Day March a grand success!!

February 10, 2008

To celebrate World Wetlands Day which is celebrated on February 2nd the residents of Juhu Versova Link Road along with the Save Andheri Versova Environment (SAVE) Forum and the Mangrove Society of India (Mumbai Chapter) organized a march through the neighbourhood.

The purpose of the march was to highlight the importance of the mangroves to the people in the neighbourhood and to send a message that the destruction of mangroves will not be tolerated.

The core group which met on January 17th had estimated that atleast 50 people will definitely come for the march. To everybody’s surprise more than 250 people turned up for the march!! The response has completely energised everybody in the neighborhood to work for the protection of the mangroves in the neighbourhood.

Below are the pictures from the march.
