  • SAVE ARAVALLI HILLS FROM DESTRUCTION
    The Aravalli Range is a range of mountains in western India running approximately 800 km in a northeastern direction across Indian states of Gujarat, Rajasthan, Haryana and Delhi. Aravalli is the oldest mountain range in India. Due to mining in earlier years, this area has been ravaged beyond repairs. Due to a SC judgement, there is ban on mining in this area. Still, there have been numerous reports of illegal mining. • The Aravallis are ecologically very significant, and form the catchments of rivers and nallas that originate from the hills and irrigate the plains. • The Aravallis have also been identified as an important groundwater recharge zone and are very important to the future groundwater security of south Haryana towns like Gurgaon and Faridabad, and provide sweet drinking water to millions of people. • The Aravallis also consist of unspoilt forests like the Mangarbani which are home to close to 300 native plant species, 120 bird species and many animals (jackal, neelgai, mongoose). • The Aravallis provide the only major forest cover in the state of Haryana which has a total forest cover of just 3.59%, the second lowest among Indian states. It is high time that the state recognized the importance of this region and took steps to protect it.

  • Save Mangar Bani Forest Faridabad (Delhi NCR'S last Virgin Forest)
    Since from childhood we have been inculcated with the importance of trees. In almost every function the chief guests use to sow a tree... why so..? Just to add a goodwill factor to the programme..! I guess YES... my thinking goes strong and strongest by every passing moment, when I find myself incapable in saving Mangar Bani... the ONLY virgin forest left in NCR..! Isn't it a matter of concern... I will say HUGE concern indeed. But I guess for some it’s not a big deal... trees will grow trees will fall... to all those people who have and promote this momentary and completely senseless thinking, I want to present some facts to them: - Mangar Bani forest plays crucial role in providing water (Approx US $2 Billion Annually-As per the sources available on net) - Mangar Bani is rich in flora (Dhak, tesu, dhau, desi keekar, jangal jaleebi, munj, churail, paapri, frankincense and many more). - Mangar Bani has rare fauna preserved in itself, including various foreign species. 47 species of birds have been reported over there. A black eagle (spotted only once in past 100 years in Delhi) and a red headed vulture have been spotted recently in Mangar Bani. It also plays home to jungle cat, nilgai, jackals, leopard and deer. And for those who care for trees, who want to protect them... this is enough to know that Mangar Bani is gonna be down soon... Come on friends... let's come together for the sake of ONLY forest left in NCR... lets preserve the future... let's SAVE MANGAR BANI.

  • Save The Rain Forest of North East India
    Forest of North East India is home to thousands of flora & fauna, different species of rare animals, birds, amphibians, insects, trees/plants, reptiles & other rare endangered creatures. The rain forest of North East is fast dwindling under the pressure of of illegal timber mafia, politician - business nexus & with full support of forest officials. There is an increasing man-animal conflict in different parts of north east due to lose of habitat for animals. Many argue that banning logging will effect the livelihood of indigenous people. Logging have no ways made their life better. It's only handful of individuals who make money out of it. It's not a big task to find out that a life of a lumberjack has not improved economically or socially. It's only the mafia-saw mill owner-politicians- forest officials who make fortune out of timber logging at the cost of huge environmental destruction which inturn impact the life of millions of citizens, either directly or indirectly i.e. polluted air, polluted water, lack of potable drinking water, rise in temperature, lack of rainfall, floods, soil erosion, drought & others. Mawsynram/Cherrapunji which was the highest recipient of rainfall on earth had 30 % rainfall deficit this year. It's world famous waterfalls were dry most part of the year which impacted the tourism industry very adversely , which is the sole source of income for the local indigenous people. The river dams of Umiam were dry for last couple of years & the water level was below normal which impacted electricity generation & the state which use to export electricity few years back is now facing acute power crisis & power cuts & the state electricity corporation is under financial debts which runs in several crore. Millions of people across the state have to live with power cuts. People need to understand that timber logging is doing more harm than good. It's only selected few who is profiting out of it at the cost of millions others..

  • Campaign:Save Our Mula-Mutha River of Pune
    This river which starts its journey in the Sahyadri ranges and finally drains into the Bay of Bengal is more ancient than Ganga and Yamuna. In the past, its banks had dense forests with animals like elephants inhabiting there. Like all civilizations, earlier settlers resided near the river banks. Some stone tools were discovered in the area indicating human settlements near its banks as back as 40,000 years. Confluence of two rivers is considered holy in our culture and hence the city located on confluence of Mutha and Mula river came to be known as Punya nagari (Holy City), later Pune. Imagine the current situation of this river. how about life of fish, birds, amphibians, insects etc who live and feed around the river, Imagine the impact on the quality of ground water, think of the last few trees remaining on the banks of this river, what would have been happening to the whole Eco system?

  • Please DO NOT USE AGRICULTURE LANDS for new Capital City in Andhra Pradesh State
    Pulling out thousands of acres of Highly Fertile Lands form the farmers to build State Capital will not only push the farmers in to a dangerous zone, but also damage the Ecosystem. In addition, this also creates severe scarcity of Food Grains. The entire stretch of VGTM (Vijayawada, Guntur, Telnali and Mangalagiri) is called "ANNAPURNA" where the farmers produce range of Food Grains from highly fertile lands. We should sustain the name "Food Bowl of India". Now, by pulling out those highly fertile lands for building the state capital will create a serious threat for FARMERS, ENVIRONMENT and creates FOOD SCARCITY. Hence, please stop pulling out agriculture lands for state capital. Instead, look out for an alternate place.

  • Pollution in Greater Noida - Green Belt
    A factory adjacent to Gautam Buddha University, Gautam Budh Nagar, Greater Noida is producing heavy poisonous gas and polluting the entire area. The factory is also close to the only proposed Night Wildlife Safari in India. Effects of air pollution: Acidification: Chemical reactions involving air pollutants can create acidic compounds which can cause harm to vegetation and buildings. Sometimes, when an air pollutant, such as sulfuric acid combines with the water droplets that make up clouds, the water droplets become acidic, forming acid rain. When acid rain falls over an area, it can kill trees and harm animals, fish, and other wildlife. Acid rain destroys the leaves of plants.When acid rain infiltrates into soils, it changes the chemistry of the soil making it unfit for many living things that rely on soil as a habitat or for nutrition. Acid rain also changes the chemistry of the lakes and streams that the rainwater flows into, harming fish and other aquatic life. Eutrophication: Rain can carry and deposit the Nitrogen in some pollutants on rivers and soils. This will adversely affect the nutrients in the soil and water bodies. This can result in algae growth in lakes and water bodies, and make conditions for other living organism harmful. Ground-level ozone: Chemical reactions involving air pollutants create a poisonous gas ozone (O3). Gas Ozone can affect people’s health and can damage vegetation types and some animal life too. Short-term effects: Irritation to the eyes, nose and throat, and upper respiratory infections such as bronchitis and pneumonia. Others include headaches, nausea, and allergic reactions. Short-term air pollution can aggravate the medical conditions of individuals with asthma and emphysema. Long-term health effects: Chronic respiratory disease, lung cancer, heart disease, and even damage to the brain, nerves, liver, or kidneys. Continual exposure to air pollution affects the lungs of growing children and may aggravate or complicate medical conditions in the elderly.
