Aarey Conservation Group

Aarey Conservation Group is a collective of concerned Mumbaikars - mothers, fathers, artists, fillmmakers, students, tree lovers, activists - who have been fighting to save Aarey Forest since December 2014. 

Our objectives include:

  • Protecting Aarey’s biodiversity by creating awareness amongst the general public, with the use of outreach programs like tree walks, plantation drives and events including Aarey Mahotsav
  • Generate wealth for the tribal inhabitants using innovative initiatives
  • Make Aarey a preferred destination for Mumbaikars and visitors to the city, for communing with nature, family outings and social bonding

While conserving Aarey remains our primary objective, ACG is also committed to promoting and preserving the ecological wealth of Mumbai, be it its beaches, avenue trees or mangroves.

The group is supported by leading NGOs that work in the field of environmental uplift. They include Vanashakti, Greenline, SPROUTS, National Environment Watch and AGNI.
