World Nature Conservation Day

“Earth provides enough to satisfy every man’s needs, but not every man’s greed.” – Mahatma Gandhi

World Nature Conservation Day is celebrated on July 28 all over the world in order to raise awareness about the significance of natural resources and encourage people about the practices of protecting natural resources. World Nature Conservation Day recognizes that a healthy environment is a foundation for a stable and productive 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.

Nature conservation means protecting nature so that it is not overexploited. It also means using natural resources wisely so that needs of the present generation can be satisfied without compromising future generation’s ability to maximize their own needs. The most obvious reason for conservation is to protect wildlife and promote biodiversity. Protecting wildlife and preserving it for future generations also means that the animals we love don’t become a distant memory. And we can maintain a healthy and functional ecosystem.
