JUNGLISTAN


Click here to become a citizen of Junglistan
Are you a citizen of Junglistan? India’s forests need your support. Coal mining is threatening the existence of our forests in Central India.
Tiger habitats in Chandrapur Maharashtra [1] and communities living in Singrauli [2] are already bearing the brunt of coal mining. Yet the coal and power ministries are bent on acquiring more and more forests to mine coal. There is no need to destroy more forests. There is enough coal in the existing mines, together with renewable energy and energy efficiency to meet our electricity needs.[3]
If coal mining is not checked in time, tigers, our biodiversity, and the livelihood of millions who depend on the forests will be gone forever. Over 18,000 people have already become citizens of the virtual land of Junglistan, to show their support for forests. More people will help strengthen this movement to protect our forests.
You should become a citizen of Junglistan because forests are valuable and need to be saved from coal mining.

Junglistan symbolises the support behind the forests. We need to tell the government that millions of people in India want their forests to remain intact.
The very thought of losing our forests and all that they stand for is very sad. Forests will only be left in stories like the Jungle Book.
Let’s save our beautiful forests from becoming barren, ugly coal mines. Become a citizen of Junglistan now!
