“It is our collective and individual responsibility to preserve and tend to the world in which we all live“ – Dalai Lama
The Chimpanzee Trust joins the global community to celebrate the #environment, that we depend on for our survival.
With World Environment Day 2020 theme, ‘Time for Nature’, focusing on the environment providing the essential infrastructure that supports life on Earth and human development, we appeal to people to commit and hand over a better planet to future generations.
Communities are depending on forests, wetlands, and the air we breathe for the survival and well-being. Actions that are negatively impacting on these, in the end also affect wildlife, people, and development.
When a forest is cut down, this not only affects wildlife that depend on it as home, but also communities who collect water, medicine and essential well being materials.
An action that may seem harmless, in the end affects sustainable development, Mother Nature is as sensitive as you and I are, and we hinge on her.
This #WorldEnvironmentDay let us, renew our pledge to do more for mother nature and not repeat mistakes that have led to a pandemic, extreme pollution (of the air, water and land), habitat loss for wildlife and climate change.
For a society that is struggling with COVID-19 pandemic, one of the most important lessons that we all have learned world over in the lock down is, respect for our environment is important, human being are temporary residents, yet the environment is permanent.
Let us protect the environment. #TimeForNature
