Petition to The Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, secy-moen@nic.in

Help stop the brutality to our wildlife!

It was with a profound sense of sorrow and grief that I read the story of the latest wild animal to fall victim to the pathetic excuse of man-animal conflict. A majestic elephant – a gentle and human-friendly wild animal that often strolled through hamlets and villages in Bokkapuram and Mavanalla (under the Masinagudi Range and the Mudhumalai Tiger Reserve), was set upon by humans – systematically and brutally. He was an easygoing pachyderm, a lumbering, gentle giant with a very trusting nature. But that did not stop some people from cruelly setting his back on fire. A gaping wound behind one ear was another indication of the savagery that this hapless animal endured. Check out this link for the video of how this elephant sustained the burn injuries - but be warned that the video is both shocking and heart-wrenching:   https://www.thenewsminute.com/article/shocking-visuals-show-lit-branch-land-elephant-died-tamil-nadu-141996  Days went by and there was no succour – not even from the guardians of the forest – our much vaunted Forest Department. When help finally came, it was too little and too late. This gentle giant succumbed to his injuries on 19th January this year. I appeal to you to please sign this petition calling for a thorough investigation into the circumstances around the injuries and death of this elephant and demand that the guilty are brought to book and punished as per the law of our land. For too long we have not taken any action. For too long we have ‘swiped left’. Take a stand. Ask for justice for this elephant and for stricter investigation and punishment according to law for all those who hurt, maim or kill our wildlife. Our voiceless wildlife needs your voice. Please, sign this petition.

Petition to Reach the Indian Wildlife protection body

Spread Awareness & Save Lesser Known Endagered Species Of India

India is home to a wide range of wildlife & species. Some are better known than he others. Time is running out for these 10 endangered wildlife species in India. Get to know and learn about them. Climate change, deforestation, poaching and other man inflicted problems are resulting in less species today and the wildlife of India being in danger from completely being washed off. Though the national animal the Tiger, Indian Elephant, Lion and the Rhino get a lot of the attention, there are still many other seriously endangered species in India that are poached and ignored, and are on the verge of disappearing. The following are 10 lesser known Indian species that are in danger and require our help. 1. The Sangai It also known as the dancing deer of Manipur, and it is one of the rarest animal species not just in India but in the whole world. A good way to spot them is to take a boat ride on the lake in the Keibul Lamjao National Park. 2. The Lion Tailed Macaque It inhabits the lushy canopied Western Ghats in Southwest India. It had a striking unique look tail and a shiny black body and silverish fur. It is among the rarest and most threatened species of India. 3. Pangolin This is a shy little creature with beady like eyes. It is one of the most poached animal. It is critically endangered and still largely ignored. This prehistoric anteater is found throughout the Himalayan foothills and plains. 4. The Himalayan Wolf Wolves are one of my favourite animals and also my main shamanic power animal spirt guide. I have a lot of adulation and respect for these species. I feel they are so misunderstood and so less is known about them. The Himalayan Wolf are an ancient wolf species from the remote wilderness of the Himalayas. These light coloured wolves are one of the least known animals to humanns, until some studies have been done in recent times. Sightings can be done in the valley of Himachal Pradesh. 5. Nilgiri Tahr This is a sturdy goat antelope, it is found in high mountains of south India. It is also at the risk of extinction. 6. The Fishing Cat This notorious cat is a swimming champ and is completely at home in the water. It is known to dive to catch its prey the fish. It’s habitat is the mangroves forests of in the foothills of the Himalayas along Ganges river. 7. Dhole These are tough predators and very efficient pack hunters. They can be found in the central and northwest parts of India. They are also called whistling dogs because of their high pitched cries. 8. The Snow Leopard This breathtaking enigmatic king of the mountains are a magnificent sight to behold. They can be found in the Hemis National Park in Ladakh , you have to be very lucky to spot one. 9. Dugong This large and plump marine animal is a vegetarian with short paddle like front flippers. They peaceful gaze on the sea grass in warm coastal waters of the Indian Ocean. They are also called the angels of the sea due to their gentleness. 10. The clouded leopard Another species of the wild cats and leopards are the very beautiful and unique clouded leopards. These exclusive wild cat is named for its beautiful spotted coat, and is very shy and seen in the wild. It prefers to live on trees than on ground and that is why the spotting of it is very rare. They have the longest canine teeth. They can be found in the forested foothills of Arunachal Pradesh and the national park. These are some of the lesser known species that also deserve to get our attention and are on the verge of getting extinct. Let’s stand up for them and speak up for them and do our bit to protect these species as well as the tigers and elephants.

Petition to Chief conservator of forest, national green tribunal, Sadhu singh dharamsot, Captain Amarinder Singh, Er. Ashok Sharma, Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, Sh. Kuldeep Verma

Save Peer Muchhalla Forest, Zirakpur, Punjab (India)

We are now all aware of the importance of Trees & wilderness in our lives. An indication of a progressive city is not based solely on infrastructural developments but its commitment to the preservation and creation of clean and green spaces in the area, specially when all available data point to the incomparable significance of an already-existing green space. Couple of days ago a sign board appeared on ghaggar river belt alongside Panchkula extension Sector 24/26 stating construction of HL bridge over river ghaggar to connect Peer Muchalla & sector 20/21 which is somehow already connected but it is just to shorten a distance of mere 4-5km. Upon reading the project details it requires almost 1/2 acre or more of forest land with hundreds of trees & fauna falling in Peer Muchalla village, Zirakpur, Punjab which forest department of Punjab is transferring to HSVP (Haryana Shehri Vikas Parishad) for the project which will result in chopping of those hundreds of trees & destroying the habitat of various species of birds/mammals also contributing loss of flood plains as the forest land is on the river bank (People living around that area knows the chaos during monsoon) & increase in already alarming air pollution. The recorded forest area of the state of Punjab is 3,084 sq km which is 6.12% of its geographical area which is 27% less than the requirement already rampant urbanization resulted in loss of green spaces around Zirakpur.  Articles by local media houses also states that residents living across the Ghaggar have a reason to cheer with the construction of this bridge but actually we are not as we are aware of the actual cost i.e. murdering hundred of trees & loss of habitat for wild species it would be built upon. After looking into all aspects i had nightmares by remembering those innocent animals i personally witnessed roaming around the river to quench their thirst. We don't want this bridge at the cost of deforestation of Peer Muchalla Village also called nature park & urge Respected Governments of Punjab & Haryana to find an alternative way for the connectivity. We need your support & humbly request join our cause to save Peer Muchalla forest.
