About the Fundraiser

About Us:-

SAI Sanctuary is located in the Western Ghats of southern India—the heart of the watershed area for the entire south Indian peninsula, and one of the hottest ‘Hot Spots’ of biodiversity in the world, as designated by the United Nations. From the initial purchase of just 55 acres of private forested lands in 1991, the Sanctuary has grown to more than 300, with its positive influence being seen and felt in the National Parks and Wildlife Sanctuaries it borders—Brahmagiri, Nagarhole and Bandipur.

 

 

Dubbed ‘Noah’s Ark’ by an Oxford University scientist—one of the many naturalists and scientists who have done research within its grounds—the Sanctuary’s rich variety of flora includes hundreds of different indigenous trees and plants—many of medicinal value—as well as numerous rare and threatened species of animals—river otters, civet cats, giant Malabar squirrel, lesser loris, various types of deer, monkeys, and snakes (including the Indian King Cobra), dhole (Indian wild dog), foxes, jackals, leopards, the Asian elephant, and the Royal Bengal Tiger all call the Sanctuary ‘home,’ with over 300 different kinds of birds frequenting its forest canopy as well, including SST’s logo—the Paradise Flycatcher. Many of these species of both flora and fauna are found nowhere else on the planet. 

 

 

Our Appeal:-
  • So let's get together and contribute towards our India's First Private Sanctuary, to help them set up camera traps to guard the animals from poachers and to also check on their progress. 
  • Let's help them get the right equipment for both planting more trees and controlling any forest fires. 
So let's all get together and contribute towards India's First Private Sanctuary.
