Preserving Our EarthAmerica’s endangered areas are deplinishing daily. Natural disastersare a major factor in their disappearance, but the most prominent factor ismankind. Even though procedures are conducted daily to preserve our home, theseareas slowly crumble within our grasps.
Protection of these areas is essential,as our whole race depends upon resources derived from these lands.From the lush greenery to the sparkling blue waters, all is majestic inits fullest. This is why I believe almost all of these wonderful places shouldbe preserved.
Mankind has come too far to throw it all away for his greedypurposes. Many believe that our secluded wildlife areas should be available forthe public. But what is to be offered through this? Many recreationalactivities I presume, but what about our biggest environmental concern -pollution.Pollution is so widespread throughout our world that it is overwhelming.Drinking water supplies are contaminated with runoff from nearby factories andeven with pollutants from our own backyards.
Demands of skyscrapers andcondominiums wipe out our decreasing rainforests. This drudges wildlife fromits natural home and into the havoc that is ours. Millions of acres ofbeautiful land are destroyed daily to satisfy the needs of mankind.But has anyone contemplated the needs of our wildlife? When their homesare incinerated, where do they run for shelter? Where will wildlife obtain itsfood and oxygen if the sources are gone? Not much is done about our destructiveways, we sit back and let money and greed take power. The solution is just awhisper away. The preserved areas should remain untouched.
Hunting should beoutlawed in these protected lands. If a family is starving and has to resort tothis brutal deed, then restricted areas should be permitted. Proper usage oftrash and recycling receptacles should be readily available. Rivers should betested and guarded for the sake of our future and our children. These simpleguidelines can be easily followed through education of the general population.More people should volunteer their time through river, land, and beach clean-ups.
These small measures can save our endangered population drastically. If weloose our world’s natural resources, where will we turn?Social Issues
