Suttur, June 5, 2020: “If we protect environment it protects us. Man has been exploiting nature for his personal benefits and destroying it. Hence, mother nature has become angry. As a result of this natural calamities and diseases like the Corona pandemic are increasing day by day. Floods, drought, hurricanes, and diseases have increased the sufferings of human beings. Therefore, we, as part of this nature should try to protect the environment right from today, we should dedicate some time for it. Our step should be towards conservation of the environment.
The ‘World Environment Day’ was observed on June 5, 2020, at the ICAR JSS Krishi Vignan Kendra by planting a sapling symbolically.
