Your initiative is needed
Pamela and Anil Malhotra, the couple passionate about wildlife and nature conservation, bought 55 acres of land 23 years ago and today they have converted it into a beautiful forest which encompasses an area of 300 acres land in Brahmagiri, a mountain range in western ghats. SAI (Save Animals Initiative) sanctuary is located in the Kodagu district in Karnataka. SAI Sanctuary is the only private sanctuary in India, acme to host animals like Bengal Tiger, Sambhar and Asian Elephants.
The efforts to make a wildlife sanctuary started in 1991 and the rules were: no chopping down of any tree, no human interference and no poachers. After 25 years their unmatched passion is responsible to transform barren land into a wildlife sanctuary. Several cameras are installed across the sanctuary to identify new animals and keep a track on poachers.
''Our aim is to preserve the flora and fauna, especially the rainforests for the future generation. We believe that when we die we should give back the same earth which we got from our ancestors to the next generation,'' says Dr. Anil while speaking to The Better India.
