The Tamil Nadu Forest Department has formulated a comprehensive plan to restore coastal habitats and rehabilitate degraded mangroves in the Cuddalore district, particularly in the Pichavaram region.


Pichavaram consists of a number of islands interspersing a vast expanse of water covered with mangrove forest. The Pichavaram mangrove Forest is one of the largest mangrove forests in India covering about 45 sq km of area. It is separated from the Bay of Bengal by a sand bar.
