    United Nations says nature sends a message on World Environment Day

    During these exceptional times nature is sending us a message: To care for ourselves we must care for nature. For today's annual World Environment Day, The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) state: "It’s time to wake up. To take notice. To raise our voices. It’s time to build back better for People and Planet. The foods we eat, the air we breathe, the water we drink and the climate that makes our planet habitable all come from nature."

    For World Environment Day 2020, everyone is invited to share why it’s time for nature. Nature is on the verge of a breakdown. One million animal and plant species are likely to disappear - soon. UNEP say be a part of the solution and join them in the global call #ForNature.
