Gunwanta Kharwade

Vasundhara Mitra

With over 30 years of working with the local forest department, he is an indispensable person when it comes to wildlife rescue. Without any formal training in animal handling or rescue, sheer experience has taught Gunwanta everything he knows today. At times, he has proved to be a better judge of animal psychology than trained experts. His natural instincts about wildlife have helped in tackling situations in unexplored domains. He, merely a forest guard, probably has more wildlife rescue to his name, than quite a few big organizations.
