Depleting Forest Cover in Garo Hills

Written by Meghalaya Times. Posted in Front Page

This is how badly the forest reserves of the Garo Hills region have been affected. Most of the places in the region have been left scarred in the same way. Large scale deforestation is threatening to change the face of the region and concerned people are worrying to bits that the show may never end until the last tree is cut. For this place, the NGOs have been at the forefront of the war ensuring the place is no more damaged than what it already is. The region now cries for more of the same from other people before things are lost forever.
