World Nature Conservation Day

People come together to support nature on World Nature Conservation Day. The day is observed "to increase awareness about protecting the natural resources and to make people understand about the importance of the conservation of nature." It "recognizes that a healthy environment is the foundation for a stable and productive society," and it "ensures the well-being of present and future generations." It encourages all to participate in the protection, conservation, and sustainable management of natural resources.

Conservation means wise management and use of natural resources—something that is needed for human survival. Examples of natural resources include water, soil, air, trees, minerals, gas, food, and animals. Some threats to natural resources are deforestation, too much industrial development, pollution, and illegal wildlife trading. Global warming, diseases, natural disasters, the melting of freshwater glaciers, and rising sea levels are all examples of a natural imbalance. On World Nature Conservation Day, these ills are battled by raising awareness and by contributions to local, national and global conservation efforts.
