The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has been allotted 15 acre of the biodiversity park area inside the Bangalore University campus to build a centre.The move to allot biodiversity park land to CBSE will be a brutal blow to the lung space. The park is home to more than 600 species of endangered special trees, 148 species of butterflies and 149 species of birds , Hundreds of peacocks, black-naped hare abound this biodiverse landscape.

 There are more than 1,100 species with rare, endangered and threatened species

The forest is one of the few remaining LUNG SPACE of Bengaluru. The forest plays a vital role in absorbing the CO2 emissions and is a home to many vulnerable plant and animal species. In times of rapidly progressing deforestation and rapid increase in urbanization and industrialization protecting our forests becomes really important.

According to sources, vice-chancellor of Bangalore University Venugopal K R gave a green signal for the construction of the project inside the biodiversity park. The CBSE south centre could have been built elsewhere, but it has sought an area close to the metro station for convenience.

The University created the largest carbon sink over 25 years of hard work. Neither the state government nor the university has spent a rupee on it. People have contributed and participated in planting. We cannot lose this lung space.

There is no comparison to present Bangalore city and the "Garden City of India " we all witnessed 10 yrs  .

Its high time we start acting responsible and care for our Mother Earth  .

Lets Pledge to save our forests and to provide a better future for our upcoming generations.

STOP acting inhuman to the mute species and lets recall that they one of the reasons for the survival of our human race.

I urge every individual to help saving the rich biodiversity and  habitat of these species.
