As a part of promoting sustainable science, spreading the voice of environmental awareness is our primary duty. Due to global warming followed by unwanted climate changes, the blue planet is receiving serious environmental threats, that include melting of glaciers, the rise of sea level, declining drinking water supplies, reduced agricultural yields, increased wildfires, health impacts in cities due to heat, flooding, erosion in coastal areas, and most importantly, causing a massive effect on the ecosystem. That’s why as a part of climate change awareness, the theme of World Environment Day (5th June) 2021 has been fixed for “Ecosystem Restoration”.
