About the tour:

“The clearest way to the universe is through the forest. In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks”      – John Muir

 

Don’t let the above quote disenchant you from the fabulous city of Mumbai. These words of John Muir are as much applicable to Mumbai as they might be to any other pristine landscapes in the countries hinterland. For here, in this city, in our backyard lies one of the most astounding biological treasures. Mumbaikars’ are indeed blessed to be living in a bustling metropolis and yet have pristine wilderness in their backyard as well.

The sewri dock encompasses the wide spread pink migrants from Kutch to Sewri. Their journey to Mumbai mangroves is for an ideal reason of feeding. Sewri and other mangroves across the western coastal belt is the feeding ground for these flamingos.

To know more about these migratory birds join us as we spread across awareness about mangrove conservation and information about the flamingos landing to these mangroves.

Meet our trip leader at 0700 am at Sewri railway station crossing (E) and walk towards the jetty. (One can also reach directly to sewri jetty) A quick briefing session by the naturalist while you engross in the enchanting pink horizon of the sea. The naturalist will take you through the importance of Mangroves for cities, feeding of flamingos, habitat, migration, breeding, species of flamingos, differentiate between species and importance of shorelines for these winter migrants.
