The Sanctuary Wildlife Awards 2013 recognises the contributions of individuals working for the protection of wildlife and natural habitats in India. After going through several worthy nominations and entries from Sanctuary Asia readers and organisations across the country, we chose 15 exceptional individuals who have dedicated their life to wild India.
Sanctuary Asia, India's leading wildlife, conservation and environment magazine, was started by Editor Bittu Sahgal in 1981 to raise awareness among Indians of their disappearing natural heritage. Sanctuary is at the fulcrum of several wildlife conservation campaigns and serves as a network for wildlife groups, concerned individuals and non-profit organisations. It is also a source of information for press and television reporters. Our focus is the Indian subcontinent and Asia, but our horizon spans the globe.
