Good morning to the Excellencies, Principal Sir, Sir, Madam, my seniors and my dear friends. My name is … I study in class … I would like to speech today on the topic world environment day at this great event. I am very thankful to my class teacher that he has given me the opportunity to speech at this event. My dear friends, as we all are well aware of this event, we must be aware about the objectives of world environment day. Today, I will recite a speech focusing on objectives of the campaign and our own responsibilities regarding environment. Yes friends, it’s we who can bring better positives changes in the declining environment. So, it is necessary to discus about this topic among us.

World Environment Day was established by the United Nations General Assembly in 1972 to celebrate annually on 5th of June. It was first celebrated in 1973 aiming to inspire worldwide people to take positives action regarding prevention of environment on planet earth. Illegal trade in wildlife for many years has eroded our precious biodiversity and threatened the survival of wild animals such as elephants, tigers, rhinos, gorillas, sea turtles, etc important species. World environment day slogan for 2016 was “Go Wild for Life” to awake people involved in wildlife crime and correct the damages done by it. It is a big challenge in front of us to solve this big issue in order to get better future on earth.

Objectives of celebrating this event every year are like:

    To spread awareness among common public about the environmental issues.

    To encourage people living in society and communities to become active agents sustainable and eco-friendly development.

    To get global support of people to make it a globally successful campaign.

    To motivate people for cleanliness in the nearby surrounding areas for better start of this campaign.

Wildlife crime has endangered many animal species whereas some species have been extinct such as Javan rhino in Vietnam and western black rhinos in Cameroon in 2011. Great apes have also been disappeared from Gambia, Benin, Burkina Faso, Togo and other countries. My dear friends, we live on earth, so earth is our first home. Just forget about your individual home and focus on the joint home which is earth. We should keep it clean, green and crime free so that environment can nourish us and not bother us forever. I am sure that if all the human being understand and follow their responsibilities regarding earth and environment, that day is not so far when all the living beings will be happy under one roof of healthy environment on this planet.

Save Wildlife, Save Environment!

Thank You.
