Location: 90 km SSE of Vijayawada and 50 km southwest of Machilipatnam, Andhra Pradesh
Area: c.20,000 ha
Altitude: 0-10 m

Description of site: Extensive mangrove forests with a network of narrow channels, in the delta of the Krishna river. The Krishna divides into three major channels; much of the western portion of the delta has been reclaimed for agriculture, and the remaining mangrove forests are concentrated in the eastern portion. The forests are bordered on their landward side by marshy land which is inundated by monsoon run-off in June-October, and dries out completely in April-June. The rest of the delta consists of agricultural land, saline flats, and barren, sandy soil. Some areas have been invaded by mesquite (Prosopis juliflora)

Climatic conditions: Tropical monsoon climate, with an average annual rainfall of 1000 mm. The area is influenced by the northeast monsoon and associated cyclonic storms

Principal vegetation: Mangrove forest dominated by Avicennia albs, A. marina, A. officinalis, Rhizophora mucronata, and Excoecaria agllocha, with the grasses Porteresia coarctata, Myriostachya wightiana, and Sarcolobus carinatus. Agricultural land and Prosopis juliflora in adjacent areas

Fauna: A very important area for both resident and migratory waterfowl, supporting large concentrations of many species, notably herons (Mycteria leucocephala) and egrets (Phoenicopterus ruber). Approximately 500 P. ruber visit the area each year between June and December.

The littoral zone adjoining the mangroves harbours the rookeries of three species of marine turtle: Dermochelys coriacea, Eretmochelys imbricate, and Lepidochelys olivacea. These are thought to be the largest concentrations of marine turtles in India south of the Mahanadi river, Orissa

Special floral values: The mangrove association is of a type now rare in India
