Apparently the anthropogenic disturbances on nature will have a huge repercussion on the existence of all life forms on this planet including humans. For the past 100 years all the natural habitats witnessed unprecedented pressure in the form of pollution, mining, habitat conversion and destruction; invasion of exotic species; hunting and manmade wildfire and the associated climate change events. The aforesaid actions drastically reduced the wildlife habitats and species number. Ultimately the diminished habitat has driven the existing wildlife close to human-dominated habitats, resulting in man-wildlife conflicts and paving the way for the outbreak of zoonotic diseases. Say for instance the recent outbreaks such as Ebola, bird flu, Rift Valley fever, West Nile virus and Zika virus have also originated from wild animals and affected humans. Umpteen times nature gives massive wake-up call to mankind about the wretched conditions of nature. Nature warns mankind in the form of natural calamities and epidemic outbreaks. Obviously instead of spending millions and trillions to contain a disease, it is better to pay attention on sustainable conservation which can help to prevent reoccurrence.
