    Activist Neola Pereira has been inspiring other young people to join her fight to save Mollem National Park in India’s Goa state. The group has been campaigning for months against a government plan to expand a train line that snakes through the park. Activists fear that work to expand the rail infrastructure signals a plan to turn the southwestern state into a coal hub.
