email from Tim Woodward:
Dear All, Over the past few weeks we have launched a campaign in Mumbai to save Sewri Bay. We want a planned road bridge development to be moved southwards to avoid the bay which supports up to 20,000 flamingoes in winter, including 15,000 Lesser Flamingoes (approx 12% of the Asian population). The bridge plan has already been approved but the Environmental Impact Assessment has not even been made public. Building will start at the end of the year. We really need your help to sign the petition and to show that there is wide concern about this development. Here is the link to the website and the petition.
If you have comments or advice or suggestions please let me know. Thanks, Tim
