Make War, Save the Wildlife

According to this report, continued insurgency in Kashmir has resulted in an increase in wildlife population in the valley. Apparently people there are too too busy shooting each other to shoot at animals.

The report has generated tremendous interest among environmentalists, who have pounced upon this opportunity to call for similar studies to be undertaken on the local fauna in Somalia and Afghanistan. If results from those studies corroborate the findings in Kashmir, it could mark the beginnings of a brand new approach to conservationism -- one based on regional conflict. Already there have been rumours of civil unrest being planned for Tanzania and parts of the Amazon river basin. Religious leaders from across the globe are said to have been consulted for establishing a long-term action plan for these regions. Plans are also being drafted for a maritime war operation in the South Pacific, aimed at protecting the coral reef. There is some debate however, on whether the use of nuclear submarines should be permitted.

Funding for the proposal is yet to be approved.
