Thoughts of Mr S M Vaidya, Chairman, IndianOil, on #WorldWildlifeDay:
"World WildLife Day is a day of reckoning, a day where we stand shoulder to shoulder, united in our quest to preserve the natural world around us. This day is all about recognizing the significance of protecting our wild animals and plants, for they are the lifeblood of our ecosystem, the very beating heart of our planet. However, incessant expansion of our urban footprint implies that our world is awash with a rising tide of destruction that threatens to engulf the delicate balance of nature. Deforestation, pollution, and climate change have become the harbingers of doom, pushing many of our fellow creatures towards the precipice of extinction.
We must open our eyes to the fragility of our world and realize that the preservation of these magnificent creatures and their habitat is not just an option but an imperative. It is our sacred duty to safeguard the wonders of nature and to ensure that future generations can bask in the glory of this diverse and wondrous planet.
I am proud to say that IndianOil has been actively supporting and contributing towards the cause of wildlife conservation for decades. We are particularly proud of our involvement with the Cheetah Reintroduction, conservation drives to protect the Great Indian One Horned Rhino and the Olive Ridley Turtles and several other endeavours - Small drops that we believe will add to the ripple effect of change for the better.
Today, let us resolve to reclaim our space as not just the custodians of this planet, but its champions, its guardians, and its protectors. And let us never forget that the fate of our world is inextricably linked to the fate of its wildlife". #WorldWildlifeDay
