Matheran gets a makeover 28.5.2016 DNA: India
Lush green landscapes, majestic hills, picturesque bungalows and horses are what define Matheran, India's smallest hill station. It's almost like a work of art that must be treasured forever… but is that too much to hope for, given the onslaught of tourism and subsequent environmental damage? But steps are being taken to reverse the picture, with the NGO sector teaming up with the administration and locals in the effort to restore Matheran to its original beauty. The ongoing Matheran Green Festival (MGF), being celebrated till May 31, is part of that grand green design. Green festival Tourism, while being a boon to this hill station, is also its bane, with a large number of visitors throwing garbage around. "Matheran is a small and a delicate place but the percentage of footfalls is very high. It's a challenge to control the waste they produce, and how they interact with the environment," says Prachi Ujjwal, co-founder of The New Bombay Design and MGF curator. The festival, now in its second year, works ...

Bhutan is a global role model on issues like climate change and environmental conversation as the country absorbs three times more carbon dioxide than it emits, the US has said. Bhutan is investing in clean energy and its constitution requires the country to maintain at least 60% forest cover and it now boasts 72% coverage, Indian-American Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asia, Nisha Desai Biswal told lawmakers during a Congressional hearing on South Asia, convened by the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

Leopards have lost 75% of historic range, study shows 7.5.2016 DNA: Top News
Leopards have lost 75% of their historic range across Africa, Asia and the Middle East, with three Asian subspecies in danger of eradication, a new study says. A three-year review of data published in the scientific journal PeerJ this week challenges the conventional assumption that the iconic and famously elusive spotted cats are thriving in the wild. It finds leopards have almost disappeared from vast ranges in China, Southeast Asia and the Arabian peninsula while African leopards confront mounting challenges in the north and west. The big cats are threatened by spreading farmlands, declining prey, conflict with livestock owners, trophy hunting and illegal trade in their skins and teeth. Their skins are sometimes worn as a symbol of power by African chiefs, including South Africa's President Jacob Zuma. Their rangelands have shrunk from 35 million square kilometers (13.5 million square miles) in 1750 before the colonization of Africa and the spread of firearms to about 8.5 million square kilometers ...
