ON June 5, we will be observing World Environment Day, the United Nations day for encouraging global awareness of and action to protect the environment. The theme for this year is “Ecosystem Restoration” and the day will see the launch of the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration.
There are many ways we can all contribute to ecosystem recovery whether it involves planting trees, changing diets, cleaning water bodies, reducing waste, supporting wildlife conservation, and so on. However, there may be some challenges to these efforts as Malaysia faces yet another strict movement control order, on until June 14. Still, there is always space to adopt more sustainable habits in our lives, say conservationists and environmentalists.
