Hermis Haridas – Co Founder of Nature Art Trails Institute says,  “Nature Art Institute believes in telling stories through photographs; hosting Nitin’s work is a step towards sharing a devastating fact about our current climate crisis and how its directly impacting the wildlife. According to WWF, the Arctic is warming twice as fast as the rest of the planet. The average temperature of the Arctic has increased 2.3 Degrees Celsius since 1970’s and at this rate in a few years, there may be no ice left in the Arctic Ocean!”

About the founders of Paws Trails Explorers & Nature Art Institute:

Paws Trails is a global platform for wildlife conservation, photography, art and travel, initiated by two wildlife photographers, Hermis Haridas and Nisha Purushothaman, in 2015. It is now a collective dream of a group of dedicated nature and wildlife enthusiasts – you could call it a unique initiative from the UAE to spread awareness on wildlife and conservation through art and photography. With the growing concerns the world is facing, this is an initiative to transform the youth population to connect with nature and our surrounding environment, to make our planet a better place to live in.

Paws Trails started with international wildlife photography workshops, and in the last four years, has expanded to four verticals: Education, Tours, Events, and Publishing. Having started with two individuals, we now have a team of approximately 200, including but not limited to photographers, conservationists, and scientists volunteering with us on our mission.

In 2018, Paws Trails organized an international wildlife festival in Dubai along with National Geographic Abu Dhabi and Emirates Nature-WWF, which was the first of its kind of event that the Middle East had seen. We have also organized 18 international wildlife photography exhibitions in UAE, and by December 2019, Paws Trails will have published its 20th edition of its online bi-monthly magazine, PT Explorers. Finally, within its 4 years of its commencement, Paws Trails has completed more than 50 international wildlife photography workshops in various parts of the world, with an increase in its popularity.  Now is 2019 the founders of Paws Trails Explorers take a step further and founded “Nature Art Trails Institute” to continue their mission to educate and conserve.

Noor adds, “The spiritual and art journey have a lot in common. Both begin with a feeling, or a small voice within which prompts you. Both require surrender. The difference is that Art can be shared, via tangible means. It can translate into objects, sensory experiences, or even trigger off the new paradigms in thinking. With this ‘retrospective’ I am looking forward connecting and sharing. Because, we all a part of one creative consciousness, like the fragments of a big whole.”
