Locals in Pakistan's Baltistan Province are using a unique method called "glacier grafting" to create the next generation of Glaciers. The process involves introducing "male" glaciers to "female" glaciers in order to replace those that have shrunk over the years. The United Nations has provided financial support for the program, which involves villagers undertaking a challenging journey to retrieve chunks of ice. The ice is then placed in shaded caves where it grows and eventually becomes an actual glacier. This indigenous method of glacier preservation is being explored as a solution to combat climate change.
