This series tries to capture the challenges faced by forest guards every day in their work and sometimes putting themselves in life-threatening situations.

The multilevel responsibilities they fulfil and the meagre resources they work with. Along with capturing the lives of the Forest guards, this series also records some rare and some critically endangered fauna of our forests.

Moments like the largest Turtle in the world, the Leatherback laying eggs, or a one-month-old lost baby elephant separated from its mother or a snow leopard patrolling its territory at 5000 Metres, are some of the rare moments this series captures.

It has taken 1 and a half years to produce this series and the supporters of the series are the biggest names in the Indian conservation world. The series is directed, narrated and written by Krishnendu Bose, presented by Ashwika Kapur a young nature filmmaker.
