World Nature Day
3 de March de 2021
World Nature Day (also known as World Wildlife Day) is celebrated every year on March 3 since the UN General Assembly declared it this way since 2013. The main objective that there is a date marked in the calendar for nature is to raise awareness about the value of wild fauna and flora. The chosen date marks the anniversary of the approval in 1973 of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES), which plays an important role in the protection of species from international trade.
Every year the world day of nature has a different theme, this year is Sustaining all life on Earth.
Each species is important within the natural environment where it lives, either as food for other animals or as pest control, that is, avoiding the massive proliferation of any organism, be it animal or plant, that can wreak havoc on the environment.
That we are at the limit is clear. In fact, on September 25, 2015, 193 countries agreed to commit to meeting the 17 sustainable development goals imposed by the United Nations and with a deadline: the year 2030. Some of the goals of this agenda are closely related to the sustainability of the planet:
• Clean water and sanitation
• Achieve universal and equitable access to safe drinking water at an affordable price for all people and access to adequate and equitable sanitation and hygiene services for all people.
• Improve water quality by reducing pollution.
• Considerably increase the efficient use of water resources in all sectors.
• Implement integrated water resources management at all levels, including through transboundary cooperation, as appropriate.
• Protect and restore water-related ecosystems, including forests, mountains, wetlands, rivers, aquifers, and lakes.
• Affordable and clean energy
There are many actions that you can take in your day to day to reduce the overexploitation of natural resources. Lead a greener lifestyle in which you separate the garbage, consume less plastic and change them for reusable products, turn off the lights when you are not using them, consume ecological products, try not to leave the electronic devices plugged in, use the car less, take your bags to the supermarket and turn off the tap whenever you are not using it.
From Defeder we promote the circular economy, and we encourage society to interact with the environment in a respectful way and encourage in others the interest and respect for each way of life that inhabits this planet. To the extent that we care about each plant and animal, to the same extent we will be able to guarantee our own conservation.
