SPROUTS Environment Trust runs on the goodwill of people who share our passion for environment and wildlife conservation. We are extremely judicious with the use of our resources and avoid unnecessary expenses at all costs. If you like our work and wish to support us in our mission, you can do so by providing us monetary help. No amount is small and we will be grateful for it. You can mail us at for the details.


SPROUTS Environment Trust routinely conducts beach and forest cleanups. These cleanups require the presence of a large group of people. We also organize the ‘Earth Mela’, our annual flagship event where we conduct workshops, lectures and exhibitions. We require volunteers to help plan, organize and manage the mega event. If you are interested in joining us as a volunteer, please write to us at and we will get back to you regarding the same.

mumbai biodiversity project

MBP is an ambitious project dedicated towards documenting the urban biodiversity of the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR). MMR is home to a staggering variety of flora and fauna and it is impossible for a small team to capture it in its entirety. Crowdsourcing solves this problem. If you have clicked a picture of any plant or animal species that is not part of the MBP archives, you can submit it to us for identification. We will identify and include it in the MBP archives, crediting you for your valuable contribution. You can contribute your picture by mailing it to along with species identification (if possible), location, date and time of your capture.

great backyard bird count

GBBC India is the Indian implementation of the global Great Backyard Bird Count, which runs for 4 days every February. Indian birders have participated in the GBBC since the event went worldwide in 2013. Each day, for 15 minutes, participants are required to go birding, and report their findings on the Ebird app/site. eBird is affiliated with Cornell Lab of Ornithology and maps birds to various locations around the world. This is crucial, as these annual snapshots of bird populations help answer a variety of important questions, including how birds are distributed across the country, how they are affected by changes in habitat and weather, and whether populations and distributions might be changing from year to year. In addition, you can use the opportunity of this event to get others involved in birding, to reach out to the general public, or even to run a local or regional project!
