Coal Mine or Highway


One of the major problems facing wildlife conservation in Indian is the inability of our policy makers to understand that development and conservation need to be co-existent. Over the years, mines have ravaged critical tiger habitats, dams have messed with biodiversity-rich rivers, power projects and industries have decimated areas abundant in fauna. The conservation jigsaw will only get harder and harder to solve if sustainable solutions to these problems are not found.

With the recent political turnaround in India, I hope that these are not the only choices the tiger is left with.
