This Couple Nursed a Rainforest Back to Life

What was once 300 acres of coffee and cardamom fields in India’s Southern Ghats is now lush native forest, all thanks to the hard work and dedication of Pamela Gale Malhotra and her husband Anil.

The couple started India’s first private wildlife sanctuary, SAI sanctuary, and for the past two decades they have been nursing the land back to life. Here’s how they did it.

Anil and Pamela have been passionate about nature since their childhood days. This love carried on in their adulthood, which resulted in their attempting to protect beautiful, wild places wherever they could by buying and conserving them.


It subsequently received both an 80-G certification and an FCRA Certification, giving them tax deductible status for donations including foreign funding.
