India is one of only 17 megadiverse countries - nations that harbor the majority of Earth's species - in the world. Yet, today with growing population, development needs and expanding consumerism, we are crushing our fragile ecology. Our national treasures are truly our wild spaces and our wildlife. They are the source of our water and air security. Environmentalists warn that we are poised on the edge of ecological suicide, but there is always time to change our course. It really is now or never.
