This Businessman Quit his Job, Re-forested his Land and It Has Since Become a Wildlife Sanctuary

A nature-loving photographer named Aditya Singh knew that he wasn’t meant to be behind a desk, but instead wanted to be immersed in nature. So, one day he decided to quit his civil services job and leave Delhi and move to Sawai Madhopur city in Rajasthan, which is adjacent to the Ranthambore Tiger Reserve.

He and his wife, Poonam ran a tourist resort and purchased the adjacent land and let the forests grow back. Many farmers had sold their land as it was becoming increasingly dangerous with predators, such as tigers venturing onto their properties.



Now, over 20 years later and many acres of land purchased, the forest has thrived so much that it has become a sanctuary for tigers, leopards and wild boars, etc. Waterholes have also naturally formed thus making it a perfect oasis for wildlife. By letting nature do its thing, forests have regenerated, animals have a place to call home, and the nearby farmers aren’t dealing with predators as they once did.
