The Conservation Society Sierra Leone (CSSL) on Monday 5thJune 2017, joined the world in the commemoration of the World Environmental Day with the theme ‘Connecting people to nature’ through an awareness raising procession with students from various schools in the country.


According to the Executive Director of the Conservation Society Sierra Leone, Dr. Sheku Kamara said that the United Nations has set aside June 5 every year to commemorate ‘World Environmental Day’ as a way to strengthen awareness raising about the issues that are affecting the environment. He added that the theme of this year has been chosen specifically for people to know that even though we get our livelihood from the environment but we must take actions to protect the environment. He went on to say that the Conservation Society Sierra Leone was established over thirty year ago and since then they have been working relentlessly to protect the environment, nature and wide life in the country. He furthered that they since their establishment they have been working in the protection of the Gola Rain Forest that help in the absorption of carbon oxide that affect the environment that lead to climate change.

He added that they are also playing a pivotal role in protecting the environment on the mining activities that are taken place at the Aquatic Environment in the country.  Dr. Sheku Kamara continued to say that people should stop cutting and logging of the forest because it has some negative effects to the environment and he stressed that the encroachment of people into the protected area to settle is a serious threat to the environment because these are areas that should be protected for us to enjoy the blessings of nature. He went on to say that people should find a better way of disposing plastic because they are not Bio- gradable.


He pointed out they have noticed recently that the vulture that people normally see around are gradually missing and it shows a negative sign that people are doing hostiles activities to the environment. He added that because of the disappearance of the Vulture in the country, after they would have processed to Youyi Building in the Western Area of Freetown in raising awareness on the need to protect the environment they would walk around with the different clubs they have established in different schools to see the number of vulture in the country. He concluded by urging people to take environmental issues seriously by disposing their waste properly and stops the habit of cutting trees.
