Nature Conservation Day 2020: In a bid to promote conservation, raise awareness and encourage sustainability, every year World Nature Conservation Day is observed on July 28.
World Nature Conservation Day: Five steps can we take
Let us encourage community participation in protecting, conserving and sustainable management of things we use every day.
Discourage wastage of food, water and items of regular use.
Switch off lights, fans and air conditioners when we leave the room.
Close the tap properly after brushing or washing hands. Every drop counts and many neighbourhoods today realise that at the peak of summer when we face water scarcity.
Rain water harvesting during the monsoon season and composting the daily vegetable peels can go a long way in developing a self-sufficient and sustainable life. Those of us who have a green patch can try growing herbs and vegetables of daily use.
