About the Organisation

Mangrove Cell is headed by Additional Principal Chief Conservator of Forests (APCCF). In addition, Deputy Conservator of Forests (DCF) was appointed to boost the efforts of mangrove protection in the State.

Considering the increased pressures of development, waste dumping, pollution and encroachment in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region, a specialized unit called Mumbai Mangrove Conservation Unit (MMCU) have been formed under the Mangrove Cell. MMCU was created by the Government of Maharashtra on May 17, 2013, and is headed by a Divisional Forest Officer (DFO).

The High Court judgment mandated that mangroves on government land be declared as ‘Protected Forests’ and those on private lands, as ‘Forests’.

The establishment of the Mangrove Cell initiated a series of measures for the conservation of mangroves in Maharashtra. Mangrove Cell has taken a block by block approach towards mangrove conservation from raising mangrove nurseries to large-scale plantations in degraded areas to conducting ‘Clean Mangrove Campaigns’ to various awareness programmes.
