Last year, I spent my summers working with four different NGOs who were determined to conserve The Himalayan Ecology. In six months, I cleaned trekking trails, helped the locals of Ladakh for the protection of the livestock, took part in plantation campaigns and interacted with the locals of The Himalayan villages to help them understand that how important it is to keep their surroundings clean.
The ecology and the natural balance of the villages of Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand have been ruined so badly that even in the month of January, there is hardly any snow. If this continues, then soon there will be water shortage in the cities and the trees will start dying.
There are a lot of ways in which you can contribute your part towards the betterment of the Himalayan ecology. Today, there are several NGOs working in Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand who keep looking for volunteers who can help them out with their campaigns. Here is a brief detail about the NGOs I worked with and how you can too.
