UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has said more than 1 million of the planet’s estimated 8 million plants and animal species are at risk of extinction today.
"On this International Day of Forests let us plant the seeds for a sustainable future by committing to restore and conserve our forests for the benefit of people and the planet," he said in a message marking the Day that falls on March 21.
The UN chief said humanity’s well-being is inextricably linked to the health of planet and forests play a crucial role.
