UN General Assembly declared June 5 as World Environment Day (WED), marking the first day of Stockholm Conference 1972. Following this the first WED was celebrated in 1974 with a slogan of “Only one Earth”. Since 1974, it has been celebrated every year on 5th June to enlighten all the stakeholders to focus their efforts on a pressing environmental issue.

World Environment Day 2020 calls for an urgent action to protect the biodiversity. Biodiversity describes the variety of life on Earth including 8 million plant and animal species on the planet, the ecosystem that house them and the genetic diversity among them. It is stressed that one million plants and animal species are facing extinction due to human actions.

India accounts for seven to eight percent of world recorded species, exactly home to 1,00,693  species of animals and 44,500 species of plants. India is one of the seventeen mega diverse nations of the world, with four hotspots and 18 biosphere reserves. The global significance calls for an immediate action to conserve our nation’s biodiversity.

Recent events, from bushfires in Brazil, the United States and Australia to locust infestations across East Africa and now, a global disease (pandemic) demonstrate the interdependence of humans and the webs of life in which they exist. Nature is sending us a message.

Despite the free benefits derived from nature, human actions upset the biodiversity. Pandemic Covid-19 teaches us that when we destroy biodiversity, we destroy the life supporting system. It is time for us to think globally and act locally to protect the ecosystem by reversing the biodiversity loss.
