“A true conservationist is a man who knows that the world is not given by his fathers, but borrowed from his children,” says John James Audubon, a notable naturalist from the 18th century.
Yes, the issue of environmental conservation has never been resolved for centuries. Rather it took a huge plunge than anyone could ever imagine. The ongoing environmental crisis explains it all. Although nature always tried to heal itself, the distressing activities led to these unstable crises.
The environmental crisis does not end with its wrath only over resources. It often extends to health, economic, and management crises inclusively. The inevitable conditions of 2020 describe the agony and trauma that we, humans, have caused to the environment. And now, the final alarms cannot be ignored.
Here are the 3 lessons that the ongoing crisis is teaching us about the importance of conserving our environment.
1.With efficient measures of living, the damage caused by humans can be controlled in no time
The foremost lesson that nature has taught us is about its healing capacity. A tremendous change can be witnessed in no time if particular measures are taken. The measures include limiting the resource wastage, reducing the release of toxic chemicals, and decreasing carbon footprint.
In the past few months, we have seen miracles of nature healing itself. The depleted ozone layer did heal on its own. The glaciers, mountains, and rivers have shown improvement as well. It is crucial to note the volume of change our nature requires.
2.A sustainable way of living is an influential solution for many ongoing issues
Nonetheless, we constantly notice the problems going around the world. Yet, finding a rounded solution for every issue is tough. The absolute answer for these can be sustainable ways of living. A guided approach in this viable living not only solves the general crisis of nature but also focuses on global calamities.
3.The importance of developing the characters like agility, resilience, and adaptability to safeguard ourselves and nature
While humans are known for their resilience and adaptability, there is still a lot to achieve. The versatility we attain should never harm the natural environment. Alternatively, it has to safeguard the norms and strengths of our surroundings. Ultimately, we need to pass on a hale planet to our future generations, but not the problems.
Always remember that there is no “planet B” and we just have our Earth to live on. There is no better time to come together and fight for us. This environment day let’s understand the signs that our nature is sending and learn what is required to safeguard it.
