What is Coastwise 2018-19?

A month-long celebration of marine life found along Maharashtra's coastline. Coastwise seeks to highlight this treasure trove on our shores, so close to us, yet often overlooked.

Photography Workshop and Competition:

  • The contest will begin with a Photography Workshop on December 1, 2018, wherein participants will be trained in the ethics and techniques of wildlife photography. A detailed overview of the Photography Competition will be provided including timeframe, categories and submission deadlines.
  • The participants will get an outdoor photography workshop where they will learn to photograph the different types of marine animals they encounter.
  • The winning entries will be declared and felicitated during an Award Ceremony on January 12, 2019 at the Nehru Science Centre, Worli.

Shore Walk: A Shore walk led by Marine Life of Mumbai scheduled for December 22.

Marine Art Workshop: A fun, creative art workshop for ages 12 and older. Talented young artists will help participants get in touch with their creative side through the art of caricatures, cartooning and other illustration techniques to draw marine life.

Flamingo & Mangrove Trail: A boat ride for viewing flamingos at the Thane Creek Flamingo Sanctuary along with a Mangrove trail paired with a visit to the Coastal and Marine Biodiversity Centre, Airoli. The event will offer an opportunity for participants to view these feathered guests up close and learn about their natural history as well as discover the importance of our coastal Mangrove forests.
