0 have signed. Let’s get to 10,000!


It can be mentioned here that the Dehing Patkai region is already threatened by high polluting industries, such as coal mines, oil refineries , gas drilling , affecting the biodiversity of the region.

The Dehing Patkai Elephant Reserve — of which Saleki is a part — is the largest rainforest in India. It stretches for 575 square kilometres across Tinsukia, Dibrugarh and Sivasagar districts in Upper Assam. This virgin forestland is also referred to as the 'Amazon of the East'. The biodiversity of this forestland is very rich and unique.

the NBWL in its 54th meeting, also constituted a panel with Prof R Sukumar, a member of NBWL as its head to visit the proposed Lekhapani Open Cast Project under the Lekhapani Range of Digboi Forest Division in Tinsukia district. As per the report submitted by the panel, the Standing Committee of NBWL recommended the proposal for broken up area (57.20 hectares) for approval subject to submission of a rectified site specific mine reclamation plan in consultation with the Forest Department of Assam

This coal mining will definitely destroy the ecosystem of the sanctuary and will also affect the home of the asistic Elephants.

Help me to make our Govt stop the project.. Help me save the home of elephants.
