Forest Man - Jadav Payeng

July 17, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

This is amazing, I came across this story in an Gizmodo article and my first thought was, 'that's impressive'.

Jadav Payeng has to date single handedly planted a forest larger than Central Park NYC. His forest has transformed what was once a barren wasteland, into a lush oasis in which tigers, elephants and wildlife now thrive. This is his incredible story and just goes to show his passion and determinism in protecting our planet.

Short film that William Douglas McMaster made about Jadav Payeng here entitled ‘Forest Man'
