A lecture on ‘Conserve Nature’ was delivered by Mr.V.Sundararaju.IFS, former Deputy Conservator of Forests and President, Society for Conservation of Nature (SOFCON) on 01.09.2017 in SBIOA CBSE School at Trichy.

The lecture was supported with Power Point.

During his lecture, the various components of Nature and their valuable ecosystem services were explained in detail. The need for sustainable use of the natural resources was stressed. The services of the Western Ghats and the North Eastern Himalayas as Biodiversity Hot Spots of India were described in depth.

The valuable services of different personalities like Seattle, the Chieftain of Red Indies; Amritha Devi of Kejarli village of Rajasthan;  Wangari Mathai of Kenya; Al Gore, the then Vice President of USA; Jadav Payang Molai of Assam and the Great APJ. Abdul Kalam, the former president of India were enlightened to the students in order to motivate them in taking sincere efforts to protect nature  and other natural resources.

While discussing about biodiversity and ecosystems, no one can forget the precious services of the Forests and the present need of protecting them not only for the present but also for the future generations.

Right from Oxygen, Water, Soil, Food, Dress, Shelter, Medicine, Energy, etc., only forests supply for our survival. Besides these things, forests and trees only absorb the Carbon di oxide released by all living organisms, vehicles, industries, etc., and thereby help mitigating global warming.

Before the start of the session a quiz was also conducted by him which evoked good interest among the students.
