Margarette Dourado grew up in urban Goa

Goa :Margarette Dourado grew up in urban Goa but fell in love with the Bhagwan Mahavir National Park at Mollem and the Dudhsagar waterfall right from her childhood.“Every time we go out to the forests and the waterfall, it’s an absolutely amazing experience,” the youngster says. “As part of the 150 million-year-old Western Ghats, they are the green heart that makes this little state a hub of biodiversity.

But today, she’s worried that double tracking of the railway line to facilitate coal transportation from the Mormugao port will threaten the very survival of the forests and destroy the homes of the amazing creatures of the wild.The root of the problem,” points out RTI activist and lawyer Savio Correia, “is the Sagarmala programme for port led development which received the Centre’s nod in 2016 and aims to convert Goa into a coal transportation corridor.
