The central government along with the Goa Government has approved three projects that is:-
1. Laying of a 400 KV transmission line in the village of Xeldem.
2. Doubling of railway line from Castle Rock to Kulem and stretch of South western railways from Kalay to Margao.
3. Four laning of existing NH4A in Anmod- Mollem region.
This will lead to a large scale destruction of wildlife of Mollem National Park & Mahaveer Wildlife Sanctuary and will also affect Goa's waterways.

It will spell permanent damage to the tiger's habitat, as path of the project was already marked as tiger reserve by National Tiger Conservation Authority. In this region other than trees, there are 5000 flowering plant species, 139 mammal species, 508 bird species, 179 amphibian species and 325 globally threatened species of wildlife reside here. The doubling of railway lines project is set up for coal transport across states and in order to connect with the Marmugao port which will bring out a lot of pollution. The project work of setting up of electric transmission lines has already been started. Around 50,000 trees are marked to be felled in order to set up these projects.If these projects are set up then along with the wildlife the name of ' Green Goa' will be completely lost.  

In future, Goans will have to face the drawbacks. To prevent further destruction of our beautiful state, we need to protect our wildlife, get united, raise our voice in unity and save 'Green Goa'! We need to stop this injustice to the endemic wildlife of Western Ghats.
