World Nature Conservation Day is celebrated worldwide each year on July 28th

Nature Conservation Day is observed to raise awareness and address. In essence, to highlight how to utilise, manage and protect the natural resources our Earth provides for us. In addition, to protect it for future generations. Nature conservation is crucial for all life on Earth, the wellbeing and survival of people, animals, and plants.

Nature is the basis of life on Earth. It provides us all with everything we need to survive. For example, water, food, clean air, land, wildlife, forests, rivers, oceans, lakes, rain, mountains, deserts, hills and sea, and so much more. In addition, the Earth has so much beauty to enjoy, all of which sustains our quality of life.

Nature is a precious gift for us all to enjoy to the fullest. Therefore, it is essential that we keep our world clean, healthy, and protected. 

Conservation of nature is our primary responsibility as our world faces many problems. This is due to water, air, and ocean pollution, damaging the Earth and affecting lives. All this damage is human-mediated.

Conservation of Nature is a collective effort by governments, non-government organisations (NGO’s), and individuals. It is an ongoing process ensuring the Earth is a safe place for us and future generations.

Sadly, with our ever-increasing demands of the Earth, humans have pushed nature beyond its limits.

Nature provides us with our daily needs. However, the world’s population is increasing at an alarming rate and has doubled over the past 50 years. Overpopulation and human negligence are overexploiting our resources. If this continues, there will be no resources left for future generations. With the increased population, the consumption of natural resources is also increasing. Hence, these resources should be conserved and protected to maintain ecological balance.

Humans are responsible for many threats to nature. Some are deforestation, illegal wildlife trade, pollution, plastics, chemicals, and many more. We are now all very aware of the continued destruction and must realise the importance of conserving nature. We must protect our environment for human, animal, and plant survival. 

How can we help as individuals

Apart from the government and other organisations, we can also take action as individuals. We get to decide how we want to care for our nature conservation. 

The chart below sums up the 3 R’s principles we can all follow.

It’s time for action to raise awareness, our voices, take notice and make our planet safe and clean again.

BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN THE WORLD
