Seminar stresses need for conserving wetl and s


STAFF REPORT LHR: The Government College Universitys Environment Protection Society in collaboration with World Wildlife Fund Pakistan and Pakistan Green Enviro-Engineering has organised a one-day seminar to observe the World Wetlands Day.


GCU VC Dr Khaleequr urged the students to take part in the social activities to save the environment. “Being citizens, we have forgotten our responsibilities and to make Pakistan a developed country, we must follow the disciplines of a society decided by the Islam,” he said.


He said that foreign experts had pointed out almost 15 years ago that Lahore would face water scarcity, but nobody cared about it.


University of Veterinary and Animal Sciences Dean of Fisheries and Wildlife Dr Ashraf pointed out that wetlands were not only much important for a countrys environment and biodiversity but also for its economy. He said any water area having 6-metre depth is called wetland. He said that Wetlands Day had been marked since 1971 when the Convention on Wetlands or Ramsar Convention was signed by 18 states.
