The Executive Director of AROCHA Ghana, a group against mining in the Atiwa forest, Daryl Bosu has cited a Chinese mining company which is making incursion into the Atewa forest.
The Atewa forest which has been designated as a Globally Significant Biodiversity Area inhabits some animal species which are considered to be extinct.
According to Daryl, mining in the Atiwa forest will destroy the water bodies such as the Ayensu, Densu and Birim rivers which serves as source of water to about five million people,
