For Pompayya Malemath, wildlife and forests have been a passion. So much so, he grew a forest in Hospet, Karnataka, all by himself.
It all started in 2015 when Pompayya noticed a piece of land, adjacent to his own property has been turned into a garbage dumping ground. Pompayya who grew up in the area was pained to see what was happening.
