I adore every aspect of your beauty
On land, sea, and air
Many travel around the world to explore you
Coz your beauty is endless like a bottomless pit.
They have tried to destroy you in many ways
Poaching, deforestation, air pollution, noise pollution, etc
None of them have seen happiness for these ills
They mourn when your wrath befalls them.
Today, I stand as your number one defender
I have seen both sides of you, good and bad
I choose to conserve you and urge others to join me
Coz I believe “If you want go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, invite a friend”
Many policies have been developed and discussed at the highest level to protect you
They have remained written on paper with poor implementation schedules
Destruction continues day and night despite all these
Coz the only language that broadens your smile and brightens the earth is “ENVIRONMENTAL CONSERVATION”.

Yes, invite a friend.
