Need to acknowledge Nature Conservation Day - 28th July 2021
On this day, let us make a conscious effort to conserve nature
Today on the eve of World Nature Conservation Day (28th July, 2021) we must recognize that a healthy environment is the foundation for the well-being of present and future generations, so, we all must participate to protect, conserve and sustainably manage our natural resources. As we all know that clean environment is the foundation for a stable and salutary human society but today humanity is forgetting how badly their technological progress is affecting Nature. We all collectively are harming nature for our selfish motives, without knowing how dire the consequences can go. We must always remember Almighty’s loud and clear message for the entire humanity that “Nature is forever but mankind is temporary”.
To promote the cause of World Nature Conservation Day we must spread awareness within the society on how we are harming nature through pollution, cutting trees, burning fossil fuels, contaminating ground water, etc. and its long term impacts, which will virtually endanger the existence of life on Mother Earth. It’s high time we conserve the animals and trees that are on the verge of going extinct from the natural environment, as we are already facing the wrath of global warming, natural disasters, increased temperature, etc, due to the overexploitation of natural resources. Rather we need to value Mother Earth as it gives us basic amenities to live i.e. water, air, soil, minerals, trees, food, etc. So today on this day i.e. World Nature Conservation Day, let us make a conscious effort to conserve nature and promote the theme ‘Forests and Livelihoods: Sustaining People and Planet’
