Uttarakhand fires (2016)

These took place in India, in the Himalayan Region of Uttarakhand to be more exact. That area was known for fires caused by humans, but what’s more shocking is that in that year 1,600 fires took place there.

It was believed that they were started by people who were trying to scare off animals in the region while they were collecting seeds or honey or by those who were engaging in illegal timbering activities.

Ecologists suggest cleaning the forest floor in order from fallen pine needles to prevent future fires.

Warning: Never leave a fire unattended in the wilderness, learn how to safely make a campfire and how to efficiently dampen it and don’t do any extravagant things for a gender reveal party.
