The Western ghats- UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE SITE
It covers an area of around 140,000 kmยฒ in a 1,600 km long stretch that is interrupted by the 30 km Palghat Gap.A significant characteristic of WG is rich biodiversity and endemism. This mountain range is recognized as one of the worldโ€™s eight โ€˜hottest hotspotsโ€™ of biodiversity. but one of the criteria for declaring biodiversity hotspot is that it must have 30% or less biodiversity left than its original natural vegetation (which gets lost by deforestation and other activities).
Also western ghats is rapidly losing it's forest cover and diversity due to developing infrastructure projects, new railway lines, illegal resorts, mega projects like highways which killing animals. Future of western ghats in our hand. Let's protect and conserve remaining biodiversity of our heritage.

Today is the 100th birth anniversary of most powerful women of India Ms. Indira Gandhi.
She was the first prime minister, to speak at the first-ever United Nations (UN) Conference on the Human Environment in Stockholm in June 1972.
She launched project tiger and passed some important acts in her tenure. Some of them are Wildlife protection act, Forest conservation act, Water act, air act and nationalization of banks. A ban on hunting tigers came to be initiated only in 1970, four years after Indira became prime minister. The real Indira was the person who loved the mountains, cared deeply for wildlife, was passionate about birds, stones, trees and forests, and was worried deeply about the environmental consequences of urbanization and industrialization. Two days before her assassination she visited to her favorite place Dachigam wildlife sanctuary in Jammu and Kashmir.
Respect her work and contribution in the field of Environment protection and other aspects. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒŽ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ…๐Ÿœ๐Ÿ๐Ÿง

Western ghats (WG) - Biodiversity Hotspot and UNESCO's world heritage site.
WG is a source of major rivers in western India (e.g.Krishna,Godavari,Kaveri) and it is also source of economy of over 4.5 million forest dependent people of this region. WG lost 40% of its forest cover in the last 90 years. We are responsible for declining the Biodiversity of WG.
The major reasons are unscientific way of plantation i.e Exotic species (non-native species),Unsustainable tourism (e.g.kass plateau,Mahabaleshwar), construction of national highways, Illegal mining in Konkan region, Industrial pollution and so on........
The future of Western ghats is in our hand. Let's aware people about it's importance and conserve INDIA's pride.
