Forests versus coal

Photo | January 1, 2013

Before leaving Chandrapur, along with local activists and volunteers, Brikesh led a cycle rally to the Durgapur coal mine bordering the Tadoba-Andhari Tiger Reserve. The proposed coal mine expansion here is a threat to many hectares of forest which is also a critical tiger habitat. The activists demarcated forests that should not be destroyed for coal using a 135 foot fabric, to show support for this natural space.
