Tell India- Choose Tigers Over Coal

13 coalfields covering over 4247 square miles in Central India threaten the sustainable, long term survival of the Bengal tiger. The massive deforestation for coal mining threatens the Royal Bengal tiger with extinction.

Most of this expansion comes from the Central Indian region - home to over a quarter of the tiger population, yet the politically endorsed programme of coal growth will result in the removal of over 1.1 million hectares of natural tiger habitat.

The Indian Prime Minister, Dr. Shri Manmohan Singh, is ignoring the rules to protect tigers has politially endorsed the programme of coal growth which will result in the removal of over 1.1 million hectares, (4247 square miles), of natural tiger habitat. This expansion in the Central Indian region is home to over a quarter of the tiger population.

We ask the Prime Minister of India to immediately put a stop on its coal programme that is destroying the forests and pollution the environment they depend on for survival. Protect the designated zones that have been set aside to help them breed and help the diminishing population recover. There are less and 3,200 tigers left in the wild.
