Forest Man, Jadav "Molai" Payeng (16.5 minutes)

Jadav “Molai” Payeng is an environmental activist and a member of the Mishing tribe from Jorhat, India. In 1979, when he was just 16, Payeng discovered a number of dead reptiles on a sandbar near his house- they had been washed up there during a flood and had died because of the lack of vegetation on the island. Over the next 30 years, Payeng planted trees on the sandbar, slowly transforming it into a sanctuary. Today, that sandbar has become a 1,360-acre forest (larger than Central Park NYC). Payeng takes us on a journey into his incredible forest.
