What’s un­der the sea?

Ex­plore Mumbai’s marine life at this walk

Mid Day - - THE GUIDE -

MOST Mum­baikars usu­ally scrunch their noses at the stench that greets them near the city’s sea fronts. But Mumbai has a thriv­ing marine life that many are obliv­i­ous about. On­line com­mu­nity Marine Life of Mumbai, in as­so­ci­a­tion with Trip 360, will con­duct a shore walk to help you re­dis­cover the city’s ig­nored marine life.

The walk will be con­ducted along the shores of Haji Ali, where the re­treat­ing tide will re­veal rock pools and crevices that func­tion as mini ecosys­tems. Par­tic­i­pants can look for­ward to spot­ting sea sponges, dif­fer­ent types of snails and sea anemone, her­mit crabs and corals.
