Mangrove rehabilitation program

Mangrove trees planted along the coastline serve as a natural habitat for fish like mud-skipper and prawns, and birds including kingfisher, log horn, curlews, waders, humming birds and seagull, etc. EPCL’s plan is to develop a mangrove plantation in front of the plant shoreline which will serve as a breeding nursery for fish and prawns that will attract birds. To date, well over a 150,000 saplings have been planted along the shorelines of the Arabian Sea, which have now grown to a height of 9 ft.
