World Nature Conservation Day is being celebrated today
NEW DELHI [Maha Media]: Today is World Nature Conservation Day. It acknowledges that a healthy environment is the foundation for a stable and healthy human society and to ensure the well-being of present and future generations, we all must participate to protect, conserve and sustainably manage our natural resources.
The main purpose of celebrating World Nature Conservation Day is to conserve the animals and trees that are on the verge of going extinct from the natural environment of the Earth. Conservation of resources has an important role in protecting our mother Earth.
The balance in the natural beauty of the earth can be maintained by preserving various components of nature – water, air, soil, energy, vegetation, minerals and fauna. The aim of celebrating World Nature Conservation Day is to introspect as a species on how humans are exploiting nature and take steps to conserve it.
