Each year the UN celebrates International Day of Forests on March 21
With this universal message, the UN celebrates each year on March 21 the International Day of Forests. It is essential that we all become aware of the need to protect and preserve forest areas and all the species that inhabit them.
Forests are the lungs of our planet and we need them to live. Unfortunately, every year the number of hectares of forest decreases, and many of them are in danger.
When we drink water, write on paper, build a house, or take basic food for our health and well-being, we should think that these routine actions cannot be possible without the forests, they are fundamental for life.
Without forests it is impossible to address the climate-change, essential for future generations. They are also important in eradicating poverty and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Unfortunately, and despite being so necessary, with incredible ecological, economic, and social benefits, every year the deforestation is greater, and the rate really worrying.
The theme of the International Day of Forests for 2021 is Forest restoration: a path to recovery and well-being. We can't afford the loss of forests, a loss that affects the warming of the climate, the eradication of some species, and the disappearance of some activities without which many of the goods and services necessary for sustainable development are not created.
For all this, Virospack joins the celebration of the International Day of Forests and the UN call for the protection and recovery of ecosystems.
Virospack raises its voice to contribute to increasing awareness of the care and protection of our forests for ending their degradation and restoring them to meet the SDGs.
