    Discover mangrove forests inside Chennai’s Adyar Poonga

    Inside the Adyar creek and estuary, one can explore mangrove islands and a world of fish, turtles, and snakes nested beneath their gravity-defying roots. Planting native mangrove trees were part of the eco-restoration of Adyar creek and estuary. The impact of mangroves on the estuarine ecology has been dramatic.

    • A walk in the Adyar Creek and Estuary along the Adyar river is a biological and engineering intervention with salty backwaters on one side containing 6 mangrove varieties and a tropical evergreen forest surrounding a man made rainwater lake.
