Seeking to preserve the environment for the sake of future generations, the Lagos State Government and conservationists have renewed calls for increased best practices to protect natural resources.
These calls were renewed at an event to commemorate the 2020 World Environment Day held recently at the Lekki Conservation Centre.At the event, hosted by the Lagos State Environmental Protection Agency (LASEPA) with support from Bonnie Bio Nigeria Limited, the stakeholders took turns to lament the adverse effects of mankind’s activities on the environment while calling for positive actions to reverse the unfortunate trend.
In her opening remarks, LASEPA General Manager, Dr Dolapo Fasawe, noted that COVID-19, although a viral infection, could be linked to man’s disrespect for his environment.
Adding that a day was not enough for the celebration of the environment, she underscored the importance of dedicating each day to preserving our “borrowed space” for generations to come.
