To: Shri. Jairam Ramesh, Minister for Environment & Forests, Government of India: India has lost valuable voiceless wealth in the form of environment degradation and loss of wildlife and its habitat in recent times despite having one of the MOST POWERFUL LAW IN THE WORLD- The Wildlife Protection Act' 1972
Is it time we brought a change?
India is set to launch a satellite to monitor forest cover, in 2013. Meanwhile, consultations for finalisation of the Green India Mission too have reached the final stage. The government hopes to expand forest cover from 23% to 33%, and carry out afforestation of 6 million hectares of degraded forest land
