Govt. please act!
Earth Day greetings from Sri Ekavira Aai Pratishtan - NGO fighting for the cause of environment.
We would like to draw your attention to an imminent danger of another ecological disaster with reckless destruction of hills and mangroves in Mumbai and Navi Mumbai.
After destroying the Parsik Hills, reckless quarrying has reached Uran. Hills have begun to disappear. Quarrying norms in CIDCO area are already violated. Over 264.1 hectares has been mined against permissible 138.07 hectares, says forest dept. Still new permission given.
- Debris, garbage being dumped in creeks to kill mangroves and reclaim area for construction.
- Mangrove planting scam. Of over 93,000 saplings over 21 acres in Manori, only 20% barely survived. At Charkop, of 86,400 saplings hardly 5% survived.
- Pl visit Charkop or Manori to see mangrove tragedy. Pl see plundering of hills in Thane-Belapur belt & Uran. Pl intervene. Save MMR.
- We support #BoomCityDoomCity campaign by PRCI.
