Sikkim is rich in biodiversity. Only 2% of the Indian subcontinent, Sikkim holds 60% of all the bird species found in India. It also contains more water in snow, lakes and rivers than India has in any other state. Furthermore, the over 25 proposed dams in Sikkim are being built NOT to generate electricity for the state of Sikkim--which is already self sufficient--but as profit for the private sector and electricity for the national grid of India. While profit and electricity can be conceived as positive gains, Dawa and his people ask the larger question: Can you put a number on the loss of hundreds of undiscovered species and one of the last wild places on planet Earth?
