India > Kumarakom


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. Mangrove saplings have been planted along the waterside to bring back the fast disappearing mangroves, and to bring awareness of the mangroves to the community.
