Jadav Payeng, who lives in Assam was alarmed by the devastation caused to the land after a bout of extreme flooding and drought back in 1979. Attempting to prevent further erosion to his homeland, the then 16-year-old decided he would plant a sapling in the barren soil every day for the foreseeable future and now, 39 years on, his woodland covers 1,360 acres and it is home to Bengal tigers, rhinos, vultures and 115 elephants.
