the forest man on majuli island

plant tree

36年前,一名16歲的印度青年目睹洪水把成千上萬條蛇沖到貧瘠的荒地後,因無樹蔭保護而曬至乾屍。他去信政府無效,為了保護動物,他決定獨自於荒地種樹,並花了36年種出了森林,為很多物種建造了家園。

a 16-year-old boy witnessed the floods washed a large number of snakes ashore and they had died due to excessive heat on the tree-less barren wasteland. he alerted the forest department but they told him nothing would grow in that area. so he decided to plant trees with his own hands. he spent 36 years to transform this barren wasteland into a 1360-acre self-functioning forest, and it is a safe home for the animals including birds, rhinos, elephants and deer, etc.
