Nijgadh International Airport

The Nijgadh International Airport is planning to develop a phase three. To do this they are planning to cut down more than 2.4 million trees spreading over 8000 hectares. The construction of such a large scale project would have adverse environmental impacts and will cause irreversible damage to the Parsa National Park located there, putting wildlife in danger. The diverse forests there are full of Shorea Robusta (Sal) trees, serving as a home to 500 species of animals and 22 endangered species. Human activities in this region might lead to the tigers leaving the sanctuary. This development will also disturb migratory patterns of wild elephants. The government hasn’t confirmed any plans for compensating for all the trees they plan to cut down. We need to take action immediately!
