Aditya Dicky Singh was the first registered member of IndianWildlifeClub.com. This wildlife photographer was a conservationist at heart who left a void in the conservation community of Ranthambhore and the world when he succumbed to a heart attack at age
57, on 6 September, 2023.
Singh won the Carl Zeiss Award for Conservation in 2012 and the Sanctuary Wildlife Photographer of the Year award in 2011. He is a co-author of the book "Noor: Queen of Ranthambore" about the tigress Noor.
Singh bought a patch of land near Ranthambore Fort in 2000. Eventually, he had accumulated 50 acres of land and he decided to reforest the area. he and wife Poonam kept buying patches of adjacent land which they fenced off and left unattended. It took a
decade for trees to grow back on their land.
