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


In the Indian megacity of Mumbai there’s an urban forest four times the size of New York’s Central Park.

It’s home to a community of indigenous people who live alongside leopards.

The land is prime real estate and over recent decades chunks have been converted.

Now the government is going ahead with a controversial plan to cut further into the forest to build a depot for subway trains.

The project has sparked widespread protests and a debate about conservation and development. We follow one indigenous family as they struggle to hold on to their unique way of life.
