World Environment Day: NLSF appeals

Dimapur, June 4: The Nagaland Law Students’ Federation (NLSF) has appealed to the people of Nagaland to build our environment better for mankind and planet.
In a message on the occasion of World Environment Day, the NLSF lamented that human actions today have pushed nature beyond its limit and “if we continue on this path, biodiversity loss will have severe implications for mankind.”
Touching on this year’s theme ‘Biodiversity’, the federation said it is a concern that is both urgent and existential. “Recent events, from bushfires in Brazil and Australia to locust infestations across East Africa and certain part of Asia and now a global disease pandemic, clearly demonstrate the superficiality of mankind towards environment.”
The NLSF said the emergence of COVID-19 pandemic has underscored the fact that when we destroy biodiversity, we destroy the system that supports human life. “All of this we have to say should be an absolute warning cry to our mankind that World Environment Day is a reminder of how much we owe to Mother Nature,” it said.
The NLSF appealed all to work together to ensure a better environment not just for us but for generations to come. (Page News Service)
