Environmentalists warn govt against development plans at Karachi’s twin islands

Environmentalists have urged the government to shun plans of construction projects in the twin islands, located at the mouth of Korangi Creek, off Karachi’s coast that are habitats of the local biodiversity and habitats of migratory birds too. The islands have no potential for eco-tourism as they are already under threat due to sea intrusion, mangrove deforestation, growing pollution, experts say.
