A Famous Kashmiri Proverb "Aan Poshe Tale,Yalee Waan Poshe"(Food will last if Forests Shall).
The environment faces a multitude of challenges today. From climate change to species extinction, our planet and its inhabitants are continually facing man-made threats that must be averted. Keeping the same in mind, Wildlife SOS in association with the school authorities of Rainawari Girls Higher Secondary School and Soura Boys Higher Secondary School planted saplings in their school campuses as part of the ongoing awareness programme in the state.

February 7, 2014: Raja and Zara are three-year-old Moon Bears in Pahalgam. Rescued a little less than three years ago, these cubs would not have made it if Wildlife SOS had not intervened. The two siblings were found in the trunk of a hollow Chinar tree in the Tral area of the Shopian Division of Kashmir. The Tral area was notorious for the number of bear attacks and also the number of bears that had been killed. In 2006, the nation was stunned by a video that played on almost all channels showing a bear being burnt alive by the villagers of this area although it had offered no violence and was merely foraging in their orchards.

Come forth into the light of things, let nature be your teacher- Wordsworth
The himalayan state of Jammu and Kashmir is home to sprawling forests, sadly these forests are rapidly thinning due to biotic pressure caused by population pressure, encroachment, logging and the concrete jungle taking over.
It is heartbreaking to watch, what were once lush green habitat home to numerous wildlife species now becoming sparse forests. Wildlife SOS decided to reintroduce to the students of Kashmir University and the locals of Srinagar, the forests and the goodness of nature.
