Nature has gifted Pakistan with a vast variety of flora and fauna. It is home to many wildlife species that are not found in any other parts of the world. However, unfortunately, majority of Pakistani people are neither aware of the importance of biodiversity and its significance impact on human life, nor are they concerned about the continuous phenomenon of habitat destruction, and decline in population of a number of wildlife species due to uncontrolled/illegal hunting.
This situation calls for creating an awareness among masses about the importance of the wildlife of Pakistan, and develop a passion for activities related to eco-tourism. There is a dire need to sensitize the public in general, and the policy makers in particular, about the need and our role in biodiversity conservation.
As a step towards this, Pakistan’s renowned wildlife photographer, Mr. Ghulam Rasool Mughal is holding a solo exhibition of his work on wildlife of Pakistan – predominantly focused on photography of avian fauna, and landscapes. This is the first-ever exhibition of its kind – that is exclusively being held to showcase the beautiful wildlife of Pakistan.
The main objective of the exhibition is to show to people of Karachi, the beauty of nature and wildlife, our country has at present. It is also aimed at creating a sensitivity among public for supporting the conservation activities.
The exhibition shall be held from 25 Feb to 4 Mar 2010, and the venue is Photospace Gallery, Clifton Karachi.
