World Nature Conservation Day

 
 
World Nature Conservation Day

Celebrated on 28 July each year, World Nature Conservation Day recognised that a healthy environment is the foundation for a stable and productive society and to ensure the well- being of present and future generation,

Conservation of nature is very important, with scientists warning of mass extinctions in the near future.  We have made this planet a  world of steel and concrete  to sustain humanity but at the cost of other species,  and it has become more imperative upon us to conserve there resources that are vital to human survival.  The natural world is facing an increasing threat from non-sustainable practices and the challenge is how to preserve and conserve nature in the process of achieving sustainable development.  The state of nature has an impact on human survival, local and global economics, community life, human health and well being.

          Jharkhand is gifted with immense natural resources particularly the diverse assortment of mineral   deposits ranging from Coal, Copper Ore, Bauxite, Graphite, Fire Clay, Uranium, Iron Ore, Mica, limestone, etc.  Jharkhand is one the main producers of minerals in India.  Apart from minerals Jharkhand is bestowed with a good forest wealth which amounts for 29% of geographical area which is far higher from the national average.  Hence, there is need to formulate policy to promote economically viable, environmentally sustainable and socially equitable water management.  And there is also need to frame policies to ensure that indigenous people benefit from development projects and those projects which are likely to have adverse impact are avoided or mitigated. There are 11 sanctuaries, 1 National park, 1 Tiger reserve, 1 Elephant reserve, 3 Zoos and few Deer parks. These protected areas reserves and park are very rich in Biodiversity and have densely rich in flora & fauna and very intense management practices are being taken to conserve the biodiversity.Please help to protect and conserve the biodiversity of Jharkhand.
