Opportunities of jobs or business are being decreased due to increasing growth of population. In these circumstances people of mountains migrate to urban areas where they face new challenges. Many people of mountains have gone abroad for the jobs. Employment in schools or other institutions, growing crops, goats and animal farming, poultry, hotels, shops, services and other traditional jobs are the livelihoods of mountain people. Due to lacks of more opportunities many people of mountain are engaged in the harvesting of forest tree. Activities of the Cutting of old age trees and then buying woods in markets on cheap rates grow climates issues. Vast ranges of forests are burnt every year, in these moment large quantities of birds, nests, wild life and herbal resources come under the fires as well, new plant are eaten by animals and due to lack of awareness many resources of forests are known as useless, people do not play their positive roles for the conversations .Increasing deforestation day to day is harmful to the future of next coming generations. To protect historically conserved resources and to grow more opportunities of jobs in mountain areas it is need of hour to high light value of resources. It give me pleasure to submit a photo story in this regard.
