In 1979 Jadav Payeng, an award-winning nature photographer, planted some bamboo to fight erosion and has since planted a 550 hectare forest in Jorhat India. Endangered animals have returned to the area and plant life is blooming. The relatively new forest is now known as Molai.
Watch the documentary of his work “Forest Man” by William D. McMaster.
