Jadab Payeng

August, 2013 by Akash Kapil

My earth hero is Jadab Payeng. Over 30 years ago, he began planting a jungle on a barren sandbar in Brahmaputra, Assam, India. In 1979, he was 16 years old. A storm washed a large group of snakes up onto the sandbar, and they all died in the intense heat. The snakes died in the heat, without any tree cover. I sat down and wept over their lifeless forms. It was carnage. I alerted the forest department and asked them if they could grow trees there. They said nothing would grow there. Instead, they asked me to try growing bamboo. It was painful, but I did it. read more

For the love of Dolphins, Richard O’Barry’s Dolphin Project aims to stop dolphin slaughter and exploitation around the world. In the 1960's he trained Flipper ( a popular TV series), who died in his arms.  This allowed him to realize that capturing, training dolphins to perform was just wrong.  From that moment on he knew what direction his life would take, he launch a campaign against the multi-million dollar dolphin captivity industry. read more
