Stone mining in Banerghatta National Park

Banerghatta National Park near Bangalore (Karnataka, South India) is under severe and imminent threat from illegal stone crushing and mining. Banerghatta offers sanctuary to elephants, leopards, sloth bears, a wide variety of bird life in addition to several reptiles and amphibians, which is now at stake, as most of these quarries operate within the notified eco-sensitive zone.

Conservation India has launched an online campaign to urge action to save Banerghatta. Add your voice by signing up for the campaign here

The comic appears on my column with The Hindu Bl-ink today.
