In recent years, nature, the one who usually saved us, started to do the opposite. The one which was the base of all lives is transforming into a demon of all lives. All may easily list out the reasons for this: pollution, degradations, and exploitations. Also, all may quickly find themselves as the reason for this; since we started to harass nature using the weapons mentioned above, and the jeopardizing victim began to harass us in turns. These events, reflecting the conflict between humans and nature, gave rise to a question: is human forget that he is living in nature and all living with him was also nature’s byproduct? Air to breathe, water to drink, light to see are all the gifts of nature, should be used equally, for implementing this cognitively; we are inserted here. Then why we’re keen on performing the irony? All these questions utterly boil out the urgent need to conserve and manage our biodiversity to provide our children what we indeed can.
‘Beware, don’t alienate air from yourself.’
Everything around us was air. It is one way of sensing nature. It was the determiner of all the lives, but now the air, through our efforts, alienated from us. If it continues, soon, a law will be made to make it compulsory to wear specialized N-95 variety masks, not because of the corona, but for the bad and severe air quality. The air we take was not the well-known air, as we’ve studied in lower classes constituting a tremendous amount of nitrogen, recognizable amount of oxygen, and few amounts of CO2 and other gases. Indeed, the endangering of quality air abruptly increased in deadly CO2, about 368 parts per million in early 2000 to 419.97 parts per million, which quickly urges the need to mention air quality while writing down about biodiversity conservation. Humans would somehow manage the declining air quality by buying oxygen cylinders; what about those unspeakable creatures in our localities? Therefore, reduce the number of trips, eliminate fireplace and wood stove use, and, altogether, voicing out against those cunning polluting factories to ensure a sustainable future.
Erect the ecosystem:
‘Come on, cut the trees, pollute the breeze, and add waste to streets and utterly ruinate biotics, only after findings: how long it takes to refit and a new ecosystem to continuing to inhabit.’
Viewing through our current draining ecosystem, we conclude, as time advances, so do human aspirations, and so do the challenges such aspirations pose to save biodiversity. The recent advancements in human ambitions have been so complicated that this has become the fundamental reason for our biodiversity problems. The resources that an average modern-day person consumes today are equivalent to ten thousand people finished over 1000 years back. Competing it, our population has grown twenty times over thousand years, from around 0.3 billion to approximately 7.4 billion as of today. The point of the matter is, creatures cannot continue like this. According to the want of ecosystem, they indirectly mean the importance of conserving biodiversity to erect the ecosystem by replanting and sustaining them by alienating them from our garbage-like actions. Investments could hasten in protecting the divine bond between ecosystem and biodiversity, but where it should be invested is in people’s minds (severs of that bond). With increasing awareness among people, they would volunteer themselves in some of these severe measures: practising the three Rs, volunteer for cleanups, using long-lasting items.
The conflict between people and animals is one of the main threats to the continued survival of many species in different parts of the world. It is also a significant threat to conserving biodiversity. If solutions to conflicts are not adequate, local support for conservation also declines. For a tremendous human movement’s success, equality among different ethical groups was a significant crutch. Similarly, for managing biodiversity to result in a glorious future, an unbreakable bond was required. So killing the animals entering fields is not the only option. There are a variety of methods to prevent their arrival. Fencing is a widespread wild animal protection practice that can last for many years. Ultrasonic electronic repellents are practical, long-lasting, and eco-friendly methods for crop protection that repels animals without harming them. Being friendly with animals is like being familiar with nature. So, avoid conflict, save animals, be with them as you be with your beloved since we all are interdependent.
‘Put shackles on your greed; conflicting was wrong indeed.’
Providing our children with a tremendous amount of money, pride, assets were far more pity when compared with gifting them with a better environment with vast and diverse biodiversity. Though there was enough money, without the support of a sustainable ecosystem, their values would drop to zero. So irrespective of what you earn, indulge your bit in showing your nature concern.
‘Let implement our ability to produce conserved biodiversity for our future progeny.’
