We must all face the choice between what is right and what is easy – Albus Dumbledore


The Aarey Conservation Group (ACG) is an association of people from across Mumbai metropolitan area who are committed to protect, enrich and promote Aarey as a natural green recreation zone for the people of this city. We are working to make Aarey a preferred destination for Mumbaikars and visitors to the city, a place where the green urban forest and the fresh air will make for the perfect surroundings for family outings and social bonding. ACG is also committed to promoting and preserving all the other natural treasures of the entire city – its beaches, roadside trees, parks and mangroves. The group is supported by leading NGOs working in the field of environmental uplift. They are Vanashakti, Greenline, SPROUTS, National Environment Watch and AGNI. Our members are from various walks of life—they are homemakers, film and television writers and artistes, government servants, school teachers, corporate executives and entrepreneurs.


Only if we understand, will we care. Only if we care, will we help. Only if we help shall all be saved. – Jane Goodall
