It is not so much for its beauty that the trees make a claim upon men’s hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air emanating from old trees, that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit.
Green makes our life worth living. Forests are considered as the reservoirs of life on earth that not only take care of our essential needs but also remind us the existence of life with every healthy pulse beat. By regulating the climatic changes, trees stand as an evidence of balanced nature.
But, the advance technologies and human activities are rooting out the green life from the earth. Just imagine-
One day we come out from our house &
All we see is big puffs of black smoke & no trees!
All we see are the cars & no birds!
All we smell is gasoline & no flowers!
Is this the kind of life we all want??
To avoid these serious consequences, we believe that radical changes are needed in our thinking and operation in order to make the environment sustainable. (Subscribe and post here)
Water is the most precious resource of life after oxygen. Water is found everywhere on earth, but not water from everywhere is drinkable. The surface water is drinkable but is not constant. In this 21st century, many people have died of thirst and sadly, most of them are children. A little conservation and wise use of this precious liquid can save many people's lives and make this world a better place for future generations. So please, USE LESS, LIVE MORE!
Stop wasting drinking water. Close the tap when not in use. Our future is in our own hands.
Remember the cartoon character "Sonic, the Hedgehog"? Hedgehogs range throughout Europe, Africa and Asia. They have a small globular body, pointed snout, stumpy tail and short legs. Skin is covered with short barb-less spines, intermingled with hair, except on the belly.When disturbed, they roll up into a ball for protection, so that the spines project outward like pins in a pincushion. They are omnivorous creatures, feeding on insects, snails, young birds and snakes. It lives under bushes or in subterranean channels. Isn't he a cutie pie!Image Source
Patuli, a village surrounded with lush greenery welcomes you with a message on a metal-board- "They belong to the village. Please let them live.". Take a look around. If you see a tree, you will also find one of the most neglected, hated and endangered creatures- 'Golden fruit bats'. Due to horror or superstitions, when most people have turned a blind eye to them, the people of Patuli have proved to be the only exceptions. They all know even the finest details of the daily routines of these flying mammals. And that's why this village has drawn the attention of the UN. 2012 has been declared as the International Year of the Bat by the UN. UNEP has even invited two of the villagers as the representatives of the village for the conservation of this species on 12th February 2013. Salute to these villagers, who have taken this appreciable initiative to save this species of bats.For More Environmental News
