With the ever-growing population, human beings’ needs are increasing, and so is the burden on nature. Our environment is standing at a stage where even a flick of harm to our beloved nature can result in a furious outbreak of mother earth. Nature cares for our every need and want. Still, nature does not receive the love and care it deserves. Like our mother, nature gives us everything without asking for anything in return or at any cost.
Therefore, every individual should realise the significant role nature plays in their lives. We must consider the needs of nature before it stops considering our needs. Like it is said that where there is a problem, a solution exists. For issues pertaining to nature, certain NGOs exist in the country whose sole purpose is to conserve our mother nature in its pristine form.
Some of the NGO’s committed to serve their mother nature and give back a small fraction of what nature gives to us are –
