According to a recent United Nations assessment, human activity puts 1 million species of plants and animals at risk of extinction. It’s a terrible message, but such devastation doesn’t have to be our fate if we rethink conservation.Ecological systems are critical for the survival of both wildlife and people, which is why three United Nations experts were summoned by a House subcommittee. This month, the report’s lead authors will inform members of Congress on their findings. Although reversing extinction would be difficult, we can preserve biodiversity and sustain resilient ecosystems in the face of climate change and population growth. This is necessary to ensure human health and prosperity in the future.
HOW CAN WE HELP?
1.BUY ECO FRIENDLY PRODUCTS
Everyone wants to provide the best for their family, whether it’s the finest food or the best healthcare. Every parent or guardian wants to give their children the best of everything. When researching items for families, it is critical to evaluate all of the products’ effects. Many of these items are deceptive, and they may employ harsh or even dangerous substances to create their product as cheaply as possible, ignoring consumer safety and health.
2.FOLLOW THE 3R RULE ( REDUCE, REUSE,RECYCLE)
Reduce refers to reducing the quantity of waste we produce. Finding new uses for items that would otherwise be discarded is what reuse means. Turning something old and worthless (like plastic milk bottles) into something new and valuable is what recycling is all about (like picnic benches, playground equipment and recycling bins)
3.DONT BUY SOUVENIRS MADE FROM ENDANGERED SPECIES.
Many individuals value travel souvenirs since they not only serve as a reminder of their travels, but they also serve as a decorative element in their homes. Perhaps it’s a piece of ornate coral, a hand-painted shell, or an ivory sculpture. But, before you buy anything on your trip, consider not only where it comes from, but also how it got there. Choosing not to purchase souvenirs manufactured from animals helps endangered species while also preventing animals from suffering to create one-of-a-kind trinkets and other things. The process of turning an animal into a keepsake is not only traumatic and torturous, but it is also typically lethal.
