efforts taken by our govt.

(!)One approach is to protect a species by legislation.The first wild life protection act 1972 can be called as classic example

(!!)Efforts to save endangered species also include the propagation of breeding stock for release in the wild, either to restore a breeding population or to augment a natural population.

(!!!)Another approach involves the determination of critical habitats that must be preserved for endangered species.

And thats all i know my frnd........

If you could choose a new National Holiday to help the environment, what day would you create?

If you could choose a new National Holiday to help the environment, what day would you create?

I would create a national day to help endangered animal species by trying to restore habitats, like to adopt a bambu acre

or something like that so we help restoring habitats like where pandas lives. currently there are only 2000 pandas in the wild, that for sure is one of the most endangered species.

Holidays also on this date Friday, May 21, 2021...
