The Tatas, one of India’s oldest and largest multinationals are planning to build (already started preparations for building) a port at Dhamra, Orissa, India. This spot is one of the very few nesting places of the very rare Oliver Ridley turtles, and if the port is completed that will be the end of them. There are other things you can do to help save the turtles. You can read about them here on the Greenpeace site.
Please take some action, however small. The port can be built anywhere. We can’t make new turtles. If the huge corporates don’t start realising the consequences of their actions, and taking responsibility of them, many eco-systems will be ruined forever. There is still time to stop them.
Why does it always have to be this way? Why is the price of so-called ‘progress’ so heavy? Maybe we need to redefine progress.
