World Environment Day ~ June 5, 2008

Established by the United Nations General Assembly, World Environment Day is celebrated every June 5. Hosted by different countries every year, the whole world will be more aware of what is happening to our environment right now. With the theme "CO2, Kick the Habit! Towards a Low Carbon Economy", New Zealand is the country that's gonna host the event this year.

There are a lot of things that we can do to celebrate World Environment Day. As a matter of fact many Filipinos are getting more and more aware of the effects of pollution in our environment. Here in the Philippines,
to mark the World Environment Day 2008, the Children For Nature Movement shall hold a series of seminars on environmental management, such as water conservation, solid waste management, sewerage and sanitation, which shall be followed by a film show (Al Gore's "Inconvenient Truth") and a clean-up campaign along the streets to encourage people to help keep the streets clean and free of trash. Also the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) in partnership with the governments of Australia, Japan, Norway, and the United Kingdom, and the Asia Pacific Partnership for Clean Development and Climate (APP) will host the Asia Clean Energy Forum- the premiere platform for exchanging experiences and forging new partnerships to act on clean energy opportunities in Asia. The event will bring together a diverse group of stakeholders that includes leading policy makers, finance professionals, civil society members, and private sector experts.

In Malabon Zoo, Manila, they have prepared something special for this celebration. The first Snake Temple in the Philippines was constructed on Malabon Zoo with over 50 species of snakes in there. That includes wild and endangered variety too. Malabon Zoo serves as the protection center for exotic animals confiscated from smugglers and illegal collectors. The zoo is a home of many kinds of animals specially endangered ones. It seems that the animals are celebration too because just last Monday, three Tiger Cub was born on the zoo and a Yellow Burmese Python lay almost 50 eggs which is normally up to 15 eggs only. Their celebration of the World Environmental Day become more special because of this. This Snake Temple on Malabon Zoo will soon be openi to public.

Nothing brings me joy but to see an animal happy whatever it is. I believe that they have to deserve to be cared, loved and respected. Because of this, I decided to create a new blog which centers on animals, pets, wildlife, animal rights and many more... all about animals.

This World Environment Day why don't we consider what we can do for our environment. Besides this is our home too. Whatever we do to it, the effect will always comes back to us. We must stop being selfish and self-centered, neglecting and being blind not just for our future but for the future of all.
