|UNEP Lifts Trade Embargo On Nigeria by Brytawon(m): 4:49pm On Mar 02, 2016|
Nigeria’s Minister of Environment, Amina
Mohammed, has announced that the United
Nations Environment programme (UNEP) has
lifted the suspension on trade between Nigeria
and other countries in all endangered plant and
animal species as well as related products.
She has also asked Nigerians to do everything
within the law to protect the country’s wildlife.
According to her, Nigeria stands the risk of
losing economic and social opportunities which
wildlife presents to the country’s economy in
particular and the eco system in general if not
“Endangering wild life threatens our personal
wellbeing, the livelihood of local communities
and our natural heritage,” Mohammed stated
this Wednesday. “Wildlife forms a significant
part of our biodiversity and plays a unique role
as an indicator of ecological change. Without
wildlife, we will lose the opportunity of
economic and social value which wildlife brings
to our ecosystem”.
The minister spoke against the background of
World Wildlife Day, which is celebrated every
3rd of March as established by the United
Nations General Assembly (UNGA) on the 20th
of December, 2013 at its 68th session.
It is a day set aside for all nations of the world
to focus on the critical importance of protecting
our Fauna and Flora, (plants and animals) which
are our essential and natural heritage for now
and future generations. The day offers an
opportunity to re-affirm our commitments to the
protection and preservation of wildlife.
The theme for this year’s World Wild Life Day is
“The future of wildlife is in our hands”.
