Nuxalbari Tea Estate

About the Fundraiser


Nuxalbari Tea Estate nestles at the foot of the Eastern Himalayas in the shadow of some of the highest mountains in the world.

The area is ecologically sensitive, and is far from being immune to the challenges of “Development," where forests have given way to farmland, farms to highways, factories and housing.

We have seen rapid, uncontrolled urbanisation in our area, where tree cover has reduced dramatically. This has not only accelerated Climate Change but has also meant the loss of habitat for wildlife and the alarming threat to a variety of flora and fauna, including the now endangered Asian Elephant.

We at Nuxalbari want to change that—starting now.



We want to create a biodiversity buffer starting with foresting 100 acres of our estate in our non-tea growing areas. We have already earmarked the land, collected a large number of forest seeds, created a nursery of 20,000 plants and begun planting a native species forest which will become, among other things, a sanctuary for the beleaguered Asian Elephant.

We have donated 100 acres of our land and our time and effort. One tree only costs Rs.1201 to plant and maintain till maturity. Your contribution will help forest the first 2.5 acres and maintain it for 3 years until the forest is self-sufficient.

Please donate generously. Our planet depends on it.

    Hello Dear Friends of Forests, 

    We are pleased to announce that we now have enough money for the chain link fence and have procured it from the market. Our fencing boys and carpenters have already started work on the posts. By next week the area should be fenced and cleared of weeds. Will keep you all updated when we start planting.

    Thank you all for your contribution!
