Ayiramthengu is a small Village in Kollam. The mangrove forest at Ayiramthengu is now home to a variety of flora and fauna. It is the
habitat of a number of creatures, marine and terrestrial. In between the
red mangroves, the rare Lumnitzera racemosa species of mangroves can
also be seen. The trunks and roots of these trees are the habitat of a number of creatures. The Mangroves are a nursery for a wide variety of fish species. The forest is also home to a colony of otters. The glittering, waxy green canopy of the forest provides a nesting place for a wide variety
of migratory birds. We visit the Mangroves forest on a traditional boat.
