“To a thirsty man, a drop of water is worth more than a bucket of gold.”
The annual World Nature Conservation Day is celebrated on July 28. To this day, it is emphasized how important it is to protect the environment and natural resources to preserve a stable and healthy society.
One of the main aims of World Nature Conservation Day is to save species of plants and animals that are in danger of going extinct. The festivities also place a strong emphasis on preserving nature’s different elements, including its flora, animals, energy supplies, land, water, and air.
The persistent overuse of resources by humans has caused strange weather patterns, habitat degradation for wildlife, species extinction, and biodiversity loss.
Sadly, this is the standard everywhere. It is crucial to support groups like the International Union for Conservation of Nature (I.U.C.N.).
The organization spent the first ten years of its existence investigating the effects of human activity on nature.
Additionally, it pushed the use of environmental impact analyses, which have become commonplace across a variety of businesses.
The majority of the I.U.C.N.’s efforts in the 1960s and 1970s were focused on safeguarding species and their ecosystems.
The IUCN established the IUCN Red List of Endangered Species in 1964, and it is today the most extensive data source on the threat of extinction of species worldwide.
The IUCN introduced “nature-based solutions” in the 2000s. These are initiatives that protect the environment while also addressing major global issues including climate change, food, and water security, and the reduction of poverty. The IUCN is currently the biggest and most varied environmental network in the world.
It’s crucial to understand what we can do to fulfill this obligation.
All humans and their ability to survive on earth depend on the preservation of the natural world. Since the earth provides all the essentials for life—water, air, trees, animals, food, soil, and minerals—it is up to humanity to keep the environment safe and clean.
5 Fascinating Facts About World Conservation Day in 2022
We are confident that these little-known facts about World Nature Conservation Day 2022 will astound and astound you.
1) Were you aware that more than a million species have vanished since Earth’s beginning roughly one million years ago? Incredible, isn’t it? However, invasive human activities are to blame for this statistic, with thousands of additional species on the edge of extinction.
2) Only 1% of the water in the world’s huge oceans and rivers are, unfortunately, suitable for human use. Therefore, don’t waste any water at all!
- Do you realize why we keep urging people to adopt recycling? The reason for this is that paper made from trees can be reused six times. Therefore, consider the amount of paper and trees you may save by recycling!
4) You’ll be horrified and saddened to learn that there is a massive floating rubbish area in the Pacific Ocean dubbed “The Great Pacific Garbage Patch,” which is made up of around 100 million tonnes of trash and waste. It is double the size of North America’s continent!
5) Each species of plant and animal in a given ecosystem depends on the others for survival. Therefore, herbivores won’t have anything to eat if plants die as a result of climate change, which suggests that they would need to locate new plants to consume or move to another environment.
The entire ecosystem would be disrupted as a result of the lack of food and the need for movement for the carnivores that eat herbivores.
