Many parts of the world are losing natural resources like forests and animals.
Choose one disappearing resource of your country and explain why it needs to be saved.
Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience.
Write at least 250 words.
In-order to meet the increasing human demands resulting from the swelling of global population, many governments are forced to exploit their natural resources and thus is happening at an alarming rate. I feel clearing forest is the worst form of this kind in my country and the reasons why it should be protected have to be critically analysed.
The first reason why I think forests should be considered is that, its disappearance has a direct relation in the proportion of atmospheric air concentration. As the number of trees shrinks, the proportion of toxic air concentration grows higher in the atmosphere, which is hazardous to both humans and animals. The presence of trees can reduce the ill-effects of the gases, such as carbon dioxide and nitrous oxide and this underlines the need of preserving forest.
The second major concern is water. As the size of the forests becomes thin, fresh-water depletion is the result. To be precise, trees are responsible for rain in many geographical areas and their roots hold water, preventing it moving either to the sea or to the underground swiftly. This ensures the availability of fresh-water and if deforestation is not checked, the results will be bitter.
Deforestation may also lead to vulnerability in the availability of food. To explain it further, provided that trees are cleared unchallenged, the soil composition is altered, which may result in land degradation. This affects the agrarian productivity. The result is none other than food scarcity, which might be irreversible in nature.
To conclude, it is clear that the governments are risking themselves when they exploit their natural resources for development and in my country, forests are more vulnerable and have to be conserved for not only our safe existence, but also for the future generations.
