Food, water, air … Everything we need to survive and thrive is bestowed by the nature. Yet, the nature is facing tremendous danger. At least one million plant and animal species are threatened with extinction, according to World Environment Programme.
The World Wide Fund for Nature warns that global warming could possibly be the greatest cause of species extinctions this century. About 20-30% of species will be at risk of extinction if there is a 1.5°C average rise of the temperature, according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
It’s time to protect the nature and ensure we have a future. With the theme “Time for Nature”, this year’s World Environment Day, which falls on June 5, focuses on the urgency to combat the accelerating species loss and degradation of the natural world. It calls on people to do something to fix the environment we can’t live without.
