Marine Life of Mumbai (MLOM) aims to present to you the fascinating array of marine life right here on the big city’s shores. To take you on a journey of rediscovery of these forgotten natural treasures. And to collectively think about what we stand to lose if these seaside spaces, in many ways the lifeline of the city’s existence through the ages, continue to be ignored in the face of the city’s bigger ideas.
To bring awareness about Mumbai’s marine life and create a baseline of intertidal marine biodiversity found along the city’s shoreline.
Some of the biggest hindrances to marine conservation in India are the lack of awareness and knowledge gap. With MLOM, we bring awareness – via our public walks and help bridge the knowledge gap – via our open access database.
