Mumbai’s Aarey forest: The woman fighting to protect it from metro project

The urban forest in Mumbai, India’s megacity, is four times larger than New York’s Central Park.

It is home to an indigenous community that lives alongside leopards.

This land is prime real property and has been converted in recent years.

The government has now decided to go ahead with its controversial plan to further cut into the forest in order to build a subway station.
