Today on World Habitat Day, we acknowledge the fact that science has proven time after time that our planet is susceptible to certain environmental events caused by mankind. This could range from greenhouse effect to the extinction of certain animals. Human beings have an enormous authority over the planet and everything on it and therefore we must acknowledge that many environmental issues are caused by humanity. That’s why we must bear in mind the importance of preserving natural resources, including all animal and plant species.World Habitat DayWorld Habitat Day is celebrated every year on the first Monday of October. This day was first commemorated in 1986. It is dedicated to reflecting on the state of our cities, towns and urban areas. It also aims to remind us of our responsibility for the habitat of future generations; a way of thinking which goes many centuries back.
