Kumarakom's Mangroves


Project description

Kumarakom was once one of the finest mangrove forest areas in Kerala. After the development of tourism many mangrove forests felled, which badly affected the breeding of many native species of fish and other aquatic creatures.

This project contributes to the following Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda
