Brikesh leaves the forests

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.

Greenpeace activist, Brikesh Singh left the tree-house in the forests of Chandrapur today, on October 1. This was his home since September 1 when he decided to embark on a tree-top protest to save our forests. He will now make his way back to the city, where he will try his best to meet the Prime Minister in Hyderabad and deliver over 2,40,000 individual sign-ups to the petition to save our forests from coal mining.
