Is this a hotel or a classroom, why so many quotes…
At Elicon House, we take inspiration from the lives of diverse men and women who work to empower societies to responsibly and sustainably care for the environment, our global biodiversity and for the well-being of humanity. Thus, we share with you conservation* quotes that may in turn inspire you to be the change you want to see in the world (as Gandhi has reminded us).
Conservation refers to the preservation, protection, or restoration of the natural environment, natural ecosystems, vegetation and wildlife. People depend on nature for many things: a stable climate, clean air, fresh water, abundant food, cultural resources and biodiversity. We need to protect our tropical forests, lush grasslands, rivers, wetlands, abundant lakes and the sea. Only through properly valuing these ecosystems can we create a path to sustainable development that will benefit all people for generations to come.
We envision and work for a healthy and prosperous world in which societies are forever committed to caring for and valuing nature, for the long-term benefit of people and all life on Earth.
Once again, we hope that these conservation quotes will inspire you to dare to be the change you want to see in the world!
*Conservation is the practice of preserving (protecting from harm or loss) and restoring natural biodiversity (huge variety of life forms).
