This man’s love for the environment has inspired everyone from around the world.
While some people are busy cutting trees for their business, this man from Majuli is busy creating a forest bigger the NY Central Park for 37 years.
Yes, you read it right, an amazing 37 years!
“I will continue to plant until my last breath.”
Since 1979, Jadav Payeng has single handily planted a forest bigger than Central Park. The dedicated arborist managed to turn an eroding wasteland into a tropical paradise for man and beast alike. 115 elephants, rhino, deer, and tigers call the 550-hectare forest home.
Payeng has a dream to restore his home island of Majuli and neighboring Jorhat with the beautiful forests that once covered them.
Agricultural development and human influence destroyed the natural beauty of his home, but Payeng is doing his part to bring the ecosystem back. He’s a man on a mission and proves that small acts every day can add up to tremendous change over time!
This man began planting a forest in 1979—and now it's the size of Central Park. http://on.natgeo.com/1Woq730
