World Nature Conservation Day is observed on July 28. The day is celebrated to spread awareness to preserve our natural resources. Today nature is facing a lot of challenges like deforestation, urbanization, the loss of flora and fauna, global warming among other things. The purpose of this day has always been to make people aware of the importance of nature. Mahatma Gandhi had once said, “The world has enough for everyone’s needs, but not everyone’s greed.” There are resources on earth that are aplenty but nothing is unlimited, as many people believe it to be.

To mark the occasion, several events and programs have been organised online to make people aware of the current situation and how people can do their bit to conserve it.
