Marine Programmes

With an 8000 km long coastline, India is blessed with a vast variety of marine and coastal ecosystems. This flagship programme of the Conservation Department aims to highlight the need for conservation of this vast ocean biodiversity and spans myriad geographies across India. At present, a team of 10 scientists and five field assistants are working on several important programmes from four field stations; viz. Gulf of Kutch (Gujarat), Ratnagiri and Mumbai (Maharashtra), Agatti and Kavaratti (Lakshadweep Islands) and Andaman & Nicobar.
