Global warming has reached its peak, and it is the high time to take proper measures to protect the environment. Proper plantation programs should be done. Environmental conservation programs should be launched to plant trees and then to look after their growth. Various new projects are made where the native people of the place are made to involve in such projects like planting trees, cleaning the lakes, river water etc. Awareness can be spread by the volunteers who work for the conservation of nature in the community.

It is necessary to organize the environmental conservation and awareness program to stop global warming and protect the all living things and the natural resources of the universe. Volunteers’ efforts contribution can create a positive impact on earth to control global warming.
