If We Don’t Act Now We Will Lose Bengaluru’s Bannerghatta National Park Forever, Say Environmentalists

Environmentalist and concerned citizens in Bengaluru have sounded an alarm after the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change had published a new notification, which will reduce the eco-sensitive zone (ESZ) around the Bannerghatta National Park (BNP) by 100 sq km.

If the proposal gets approved the ESZ will be reduced to just 169 sq km from the current 269 sq km and reduce the extent of the ESZ from a maximum of 4.5 km to a maximum of 1 km.
