Drive anywhere in Mumbai these days, you will see large billboards with DSP Blackrock featuring incredible images of tigers and the company’s support for the Sanctuary Wildlife Awards.

It is easy to be cynical in this world yet I must say Sanctuary Asia magazine and its annual award ceremony was an incredibly inspiring, moving and deeply humbling affair.

We were fortunate to meet Bittu Sahgal at a friend’s wedding – a remarkable human being whose genuine passion for preserving nature’s creatures and habitat is infectious!

Beautifully hosted by the enchanting Dia Mirza, the entire ceremony saluted the stories of so many people making a difference.

A few highlights:

As I put up the 2015 calendar featuring the Photography winners, I am reminded again of the amazing efforts of so many working towards preserving our environment and the creatures other than us humans who inhabit it.

    Sanctuary Asia is out searching for another set of Earth Heroes who will be honoured in December 2015. Take a look at the phalanx of good people we have been able to hone in on thus far! http://www.sanctuaryasia.com/people/earth-heroes.html
