World Environment Day 2020: Biodiversity

On the 5th of June, 2020; as part of the celebrations to mark World Environment Day on the 5th of June, we were a part of the tree planting occasion organized by the Ministry of Environment, Delta State in the State’s International airport. All present were sure to recognize social distancing even as we sought to appreciate nature by planting trees.

Trees are vital. As the biggest plants on the planet, they give us oxygen, store carbon, stabilise the soil and give life to the world’s wildlife. They also provide us with the materials for tools and shelter. Not only are trees essential for life, but as the longest living species on earth, they give us a link between the past, present and future.

Nature is everything in the world that isn’t man-made and it is time, we pay special attention to it.

Below are some pictures from the event:
