Aarey Conservation Group (ACG) is a coming together of people, committed to enriching and promoting Aarey as a pristine green zone for Mumbaikars.
Inculcating a love of nature, creating sensitivity towards ecosystems and the awareness on how ecological conservation is necessary to secure our future, are pillars of ACG’s workings.
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. Our members come from all walks of life—film and television artistes, government servants, school teachers, corporate executives, entrepreneurs, students and homemakers.
