To mitigate the effects of climate change on the environment as already being felt in Nigeria, public advocacy about the environment should be intensified among the populace so as to be more aware of the need to adjust their lifestyle to reduce carbon emission which poses a threat to human existence. This assertion was made by the Director General, Nigerian Conservation Foundation (NCF), Mr. Adeniyi Karunwi, at the Foundation’s headquarters in Lekki, Lagos, during the event to commemorate the Earth Hour 2016, organized in partnership with a nongovernmental organisation, Connected Development (CODE). During the event that was marked with the symbolic one-hour of darkness, between 8:30pm and 9:30 pm, so as to encourage the reduction of carbon emission, observed across over 170 countries according to time zones and broadcast worldwide via the social media, Karunwi said there was need for social and political will to intensify campaign against the rise in global temperatures and its ripple effect on the environment because many Nigerians are still unaware of the benefits of building a clean energy economy and the risks of not doing it.

The Director General of the Nigerian Conservation Foundation (NCF), Mr. Adeniyi Karunwi, has called for more efforts that can combat degradation of forests, which will in turn protect the wildlife, just as he said a similar effort was needed to stop trafficking of wildlife in the country and sub-Saharan Africa at large. Karunwi made the call at the United States Consulate, Lagos, during the commemoration of this year’s World Wildlife Day organised by the American Consulate According to him, the pressure for ivory as a result of the demand from parts of Asia should be curbed so as to discourage hunting and indiscriminate poaching, which have led to the decline of wildlife population including elephants and rhinos. He said other animals such as pangolins had also become endangered because of such human activities. To fully arrest the situation, Karunwi said NCF was already championing the Green Recovery Nigeria Initiative with the aim of recovering one per cent of forest cover per year in the country for the next 25 years so as to meet up with the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation’s recommendation of 25 per cent forest cover. He said the initiative was also part of the Foundation’s…
Nigerians have been enjoined to make wise use of the wetlands resources so as to enjoy continuous yield and help the future generations meet their needs and aspirations. The Director, Technical Programmes, Nigerian Conservation Foundation (NCF), Dr. Joseph Onoja, who gave this charge in Nguru, Yobe State, recently, also said that this could only happen when people ensure that they engage in activities that are sustainable and friendly to their environment. According to Dr. Onoja, while addressing the gathering during the NCF Hadejia-Nguru Wetlands Conservation Project (NCF-HNWCP) celebration of the 2016 edition of the Annual World Wetlands Day, wetlands are among the world’s most productive environment and are very sensitive to pollution from indiscriminate dumping of refuse. “The wetlands’ productivity depends on the proper ecological functioning of wetlands, which is distorted by unsustainable and unfriendly anthropogenic environmental practices,” Onoja said. The Acting Chairman of Nguru Local Government Area, Alhaji Maina D. Chiroma, while commending the good efforts of the organizers of the event and the activities of the NCF-Hadejia-Nguru Conservation Project in the wetlands over the years, said that the people in Nguru were so grateful to NCF for choosing to host this year’s celebration in their area. “NCF’s activities…
