Aaliya Mir is the backbone of all of the Wildlife SOS programs based in the state of Jammu and Kashmir. She has been involved with the organization since 2007. She leads a team of people who work to reduce the human/wildlife conflict in the region. Whether she is organizing marches, educating students or conducting awareness seminars, she is a busy lady. When asked about her passion for wildlife, she says, “Wildlife always fascinated me since childhood but the plight of wildlife in Jammu & Kashmir state actually got me involved to work for the interest of wildlife.” Aaliya’s hobbies include reading, but she hardly gets time to read as her commitment to work and her two kids keep her busy.
