Protect endangered plants

Respected Principal, teachers and my dear friends. This morning, I would like to briefly express the importance to protect endangered flowers and plants.

Flowers and plants are important to us because they help to purify the atmosphere. They give us  oxygen and take in carbon-dioxide. Some of the plants like Neem, Tulsi, etc. are medicinal plants that are used to treat various ailments. Some of the flowers like Jasmine, Rose etc.are used to make various cosmetic products. Flowers are used for decoration purposes. There are various benefits which we obtain from them. So, they need to be protected.

There are some ways to protect our endangered flowers and plants:

  • Take care of the plant in every aspect.
  • The surrounding area of the plant should not be disturbed.
  • Protect the plants from being eaten by animals and birds.
  • If possible, report in the nearby botany department or horticulturist.

Plants and animals hold medicinal, agricultural, ecological, commercial and aesthetic/recreational value. So, they must be protected and saved so that future generations can experience their presence and value. If the destruction of nature proceeds at the same rate, then a day will come when humans themselves will become extinct.  I thank you for listening with patience.
