Include Western Ghats In UNESCO Heritage List

Panaji: The state government should consider the inclusion of the Goa stretch of the Western Ghats in the UNESCO world heritage site nomination dossier as it is an integral part of the wildlife corridor and vital for sustaining the gene pool and species' diversity.

In a letter to chief minister Digambar Kamat this plea was put forward by an NGO, Goa Heritage Action Group. It urged the government to treat it as a matter of priority and initiate the process to dispatch an application to the world organization immediately.

"It is ironic that while our Old Goa churches (inscribed in 1986) are already part of the UNESCO world heritage sites list of cultural assets, our natural heritage, the Western Ghats in Goa, of outstanding universal value has not gained the attention of the state's leadership," the letter endorsed by GHAG secretary Jack Sukhija and heritage listing in-charge, Tallulah D'Silva states.
