The day of ecologist is a modern celebration
The day of ecologist is a relatively young holiday, which in Russia was celebrated recently. Officially, the Day of ecologist imposed by presidential order in 2007. In General, ecology and environmental protection, a concept that appears in our everyday life not very long ago, although these issues the best minds concerned about for many years.
For the first time the term "ecology" used by the German biologist Haeckel about 150 years ago, defining ecology as a branch of biology. Subsequently the environment was given the status of science that defines the relationship between the living organisms and plant components in the environment, a changed man (or left unchanged). Inextricably linked the concept of "ecology" and "health". Because the dirty emissions ambient air or ground water often cause various diseases.
This is something that concerns science. But in the everyday life of ordinary people, this concept is often used in phrases of this kind: "ecology is to blame" or "bad environment". Here the environment is defined as a set of living conditions, environment. And changing this environment is not for the better, thus attracting the attention of the public, which shows his civic engagement by holding various rallies and pickets. These actions are aimed at protecting their health and preserving a habitable environment. Therefore, an increasingly popular profession of ecologist.
The job of the ecologist is not easy, because not all citizens understand that the future of our planet depends on each resident. Each person can contribute to improving habitat conditions. Today this specialist, as an ecologist, necessary in every enterprise in most organizations. The purpose of this post — monitoring of compliance with environmental legislation in the enterprise and contact with regulatory authorities (state). In addition, many ecologists-volunteers involved in the conduct of various activities (such as cleaning the sea water and the rescue of animals from spilled oil or environmental education).
For the benefit of environmental protection today work entire departments and ministries. This, in particular, the Ministry of natural resources, Rosprirodnadzor, the Environmental Prosecutor's office, the Committee and the Department of natural resources. In addition, some businesses spetsializiruyutsya on the preservation of normal environment: they create equipment that can be used to protect natural environment, develop different projects that can minimize the negative impact on nature.
Environment day celebrated on 5 June. On this day, the UN held the first conference on environmental issues. It was in 1972, and next year this date was world environment day. The establishment of this holiday – the way to attract people's attention to the issues and problems of ecology. This day is marked by holding various "green" rallies and pickets in schools, competitions of children's drawings on the theme of protecting nature.
But the Day of the ecologist is not only a professional holiday, a holiday for all not indifferent to their future and the future descendants of people. On this day I want to wish all of fresh air, clean water and clean land. In addition, you just need to encourage more people to pay more attention to the issues of preservation of favorable natural environment, the protection of all life and our ecological future!
