It is rather mandatory than just essential to have a minimum of 37% of total land area under forest cover. But, in India, ONLY 22.4% of the total land area is covered by forests. This is a matter of immediate Government action. In the name of "Development", there have been ENCROACHMENTS on 2.04 lakh acres of forest land in Karnataka.These areas include RESERVED AND PROTECTED FOREST LAND. Every millimetre of forest land indirectly forms the alveoli or air sacs of our lungs.

          When we lose our homes, we demand for numerous things such as compensation, etc. What do innocent creatures have to do when they lose their homes, apart from eventually dying? Habitat destruction has already resulted in increase in human mortality rates, as famished creatures begin to feed on humans inhabiting areas close to forests. 

           Signing this petition will surely grant the supporters the blessings of numerous grateful creatures which will be saved from extinction.
