On 16,610 hectares of pristine forest on the Great Nicobar Island, the Union government has approved spending of Rs. 75,000 crore for the development of a greenfield international port, an international container transshipment terminal, a city, and power plants. The project has received approval from the ministry of the environment’s Expert Appraisal Committee on Infrastructure Projects. The EAC has deemed the Nicobar megapode a keystone species of the Nicobar Island, and 30 of its 51 active nests will be permanently removed. For the unique species, mangroves, corals, and other wildlife, in addition to a number of other restrictions, the EAC has enforced specific “conservation and management plans” and significant funding. There will be three independent committees established: one to manage biodiversity and Shompen issues, another to handle pollution-related issues, and a third to oversee welfare.
