Biodiversity is essential to keep this earth sustainable and healthy for our future generations. Maintaining ecological balance is the key to our world's proper functioning. However, from pollution and industrial waste dumping to global warming, various things are hampering earth. The essence of biodiversity is to try and maintain the natural balance on earth. The celebration of World Biodiversity Day is therefore focused on raising awareness of the various threats that we are currently facing, educating people on what it means to care about biodiversity, and identifying how to create a sustainable life vs a sustainable life that is often marketed to us.
While we have all heard jargon like sustainable lifestyle, living clean, etc., most of us are not well aware of the meaning behind these phrases. The celebration of International Day for Biological Diversity aims to change just that. This is why people often choose this day to share messages on Biodiversity, Quotes on Biodiversity, International Day for Biological Diversity wishes and messages, World Biodiversity Day WhatsApp messages, and World Biodiversity Day quotes with family and friends.
