A series of photos that have appeared on the social media platforms of a prominent conservationist in the country’s Uttarakhand region, shows a man taking care of an animal that had died of thirst after it was fed in a plastic tub.
The photographs show a man, identified as Prakash Sharma, holding an animal in a bucket and using it as a makeshift drinking water tank.
Sharma’s conservation photos have gone viral and been viewed more than 100,000 times in less than 24 hours.
In one of the pictures, Sharma can be seen carrying the animal by the neck, and using a spoon to feed it water.
In another, Sharma is seen holding the animal’s head, which is covered with a plastic bag.
Sharmila Devi, the conservationist and founder of the Silt Water Conservancy, a nonprofit that aims to conserve rivers in the region, said in a statement that Sharma’s photographs “provide the first documented instance of human conservation.”
“I would like to thank the brave souls who have shared the photos and shared their courage,” Devi said.
“This is the first time I’ve seen such a brave act in the world.”
The images were shared on social media on Friday after the man posted them on his Facebook page.
Shaikh Hussain, who works with the Sivamu River Project, which works to conserve the river, told The Hindu that the images were “very brave” and that the man was an “extraordinary” person.
The photos were taken during a visit to the Sivalam region in May this year, where Sharma was staying with his wife, who has diabetes.
Shiksha said the couple did not want to be photographed because of the dangers of water in the river and because of his diabetes.
“They were very brave.
They took the animal and the bucket to the river to bathe it, which was very dangerous.
I think it’s an act of bravery.
The animal was very thirsty,” she said.
Sh Sharma, who runs a small business in Sivaram, said he started using the bucket as a drinking water reservoir after he became worried about the health of the animals he kept at home.
“It was just my wife’s water.
She is diabetic and we didn’t have the money for a filter.
We were using plastic bottles and buckets,” Sharma said.”
I went out to bathed the animal in the bucket.
The water is still not completely clear, but it’s safe now.
My wife has diabetes and I didn’t want her to get sick.”
The Sivamyas, which are located about 2,500km from the capital, Delhi, are the most popular destinations for tourists in Uttarakas watery regions.
The Uttarakashis are known for their lush green rivers and pristine natural landscapes, but they have also suffered from the effects of climate change.
The rivers in their region have been drying up for centuries due to global warming and a decline in rainfall.
The Sivalams, which have a population of nearly 15,000, are often visited by foreign tourists to see the majestic beauty of the area.
Sharthik Kumar, a conservationist with the river project, said Sharma’s work has brought them hope.
“The Sivaam river is one of Uttarakhes most beautiful rivers.
The government should take a long-term view and make this a national priority, he said.
