Dear friend,

The efforts at saving the mangroves will not succeed unless we devote dedicated resources for the same.

We will most certainly loose all mangroves within a decade by 2020 if there are no dedicated people and resources to follow up acts of destruction. Following up with the authorities, site visits, filing reports etc. are not activities which can be done in a part time voluntary mode.

We request you to consider an annual membership as a small financial contribution aimed at helping us develop full time resources to fight the cause of mangrove conservation.

Your contribution will help us provide for the salary, travel allowance and office rentals.  You can also support with bigger donations. All donors will be acknowledged below (unless they do not wish). All income and expenditure will also be displayed below and emailed to the individual donors.

Annual fee: Rs. 500 – Cheque in the name of “Save Andheri Versova Forum”

The Mumbai Chapter came up under the aegis of the SAVE Forum’s efforts at saving the local mangroves and does not have a registered bank account of its own. SAVE Forum has a formal registration and 80G tax benefits.

Please do mention behind the cheque or send a note saying that the contribution is towards MSI.

Cheques can be sent to 1, Safina Sadan, Seven Bungalows, Andheri(W), Mumbai – 400061.

For any further information please send an email to mumbaimangroves [@]

    Just after Reading in todays Mumbai Mirror i realised that i too am facing the same problem in my area.
    i had even complained to the BMC, Without solving the issue they closed my complaint, Then i complained to the Police, They called me to their Beat office about four months ago, Promised me the Thing would be solved, but nothing in the last 4 months.
    Sir the problem is Mhada Residents throw their household garbage in the mangroves, Making them die, it is visible through a naked eye.
    The Address of the affected Site is…
    Open Plot Behind New Mhada Colony,
    Din Quary Road, Behind Runwal Hills CHS,
    Panjrapole Village,
    Chembur East, Mumbai 400088
    If your office could in any way help, it would be great.
    I do hope i would not ne let down.
    Thanking You,
    Yours truly,

But govt officials not taking any serious action against company. They only registered FIR against unknown persons. They need to scientifically examination of the soil at such spot to find whether chemical are use or not. We request you to look after yourselves in that matter.

    Hello I thought I should write it down here so I can get some help I stay at Ramabai colony Ghatkopar east. There is huge mangrove patch behind ramabai colony which is getting rapidly destroyed by land mafia. Every day a new hut comes up and this is going on with the help of beat police and BMC people. I have noticed illegal dumping of mud & building material in the mangrove and before this they burn it in the night time. This is going on from last 8-12 months on huge basis,earlier also it was happening but not so much what is going on now. In last 2 months 1 acre of mangrove has been killed/burnt and no forest authority is paying attention to it. I had complaint about this last year to forest dept but no action has been taken, same way I informed NGO also but they came and took photographs and assured me of action but nothing happened after that the work speed has been doubled.

    I hope somebody will help here
