Description of site: The Ratnagiri Mangroves region comprises the three estuaries Bhatye, Kalbadevi, and Are, located near the city of Ratnagiri. Anthropogenic pressures are heavy at the mouth of Bhatye estuary/ Kajvi river (forming the southern boundary of Ratnagiri city) while the upstream areas are relatively less disturbed. Human activity is also intense at the mouth of Kalbadevi estuary from where a large channel of water descends southward, forming the Shirgaon creek, which supports a large number of mangrove species. Are, the smallest of the three estuaries, is relatively less inhabited and supports more extensive vegetative cover than the other two. Daily tides flood the vegetation, affecting soil salinity

Climatic conditions: Tropical monsoon climate. Average annual rainfall is 2000 mm. Temperatures vary from 12.5° C to 36° C

Principal vegetation: Woody mangroves cover the area. The dominant species are Rhizophora mucronata, R.apiculata, Sonneratia albs, Avicennia officinalis, A. marina, Ceriops tagal, Aegiceras corniculatum.
