      <Abstract>Nature and Natural Resources in Nigeria are daily assaulted by anthropogenic forces resulting into extinction while those species still in existence are endangered. Nature is mute in the face of this onslaught, a situation that demands a voice to speak to curtail the aggression. The media as the fourth estate of the realm is no doubt, the voice that is needed at this time because of the pedigree of media in campaigns against anti-social vices and the promotion of democratic virtues. The media in Nigeria, however, has not given due attention to the problems of nature and the effects on humanity, plants, animals and the ecosystems. The objective of this study is to provoke the media into action in order to stem the tide for the present generation and future generations. The challenges of nature in Nigeria are humongous and they include environmental pollution, deforestation, waste management and disposal, desertification, global warming, terrorism and insurgency, flooding, erosion etc. The challenges exist not because there are no laws but basically because of lack of enforcement and information. The study is both doctrinal and empirical while data are obtained from both primary and secondary sources. The study found that the voice of media is potent in mass communication in Nigeria. The study concluded that there is a need for critical collaboration between the media and man for the benefit of nature.</Abstract>
