Sundarbans, the world’s largest mangrove forest, is facing disaster from a giant coal mega-plant.
Let’s act now and turn this major tragedy into a “never again” moment.
The next accident is right around the corner. The Bangladesh government is relentlessly pursuing major industrial projects like the 1320 megawatt Rampal coal plant that will generate enormous volumes of toxic waste and leave the forest waterways vulnerable to future hazardous spills.
But UNESCO is concerned about the situation, and if enough of us raise our voices now, we can persuade them to officially declare the Sundarbans as a “World Heritage in Danger” and force the Bangladesh government to protect the forest.
Let’s send a deafening call to the chair of UNESCO’s key committee to save this global treasure!
