Conservation is the preservation and the careful management of the natural environment and its natural resources. Conservation means many things to many people. To some it means preserving the wilderness in certain sections. To others it means preserving the wildlife. Conservation includes efforts to protect forests, as well as the wise use of all natural resources. Some people still do not know the importance of conservation and are unknowingly wasting our planets??™ natural resources.By conserving the environment, we can protect many living organisms from extinction. Nowadays, people are clearing a lot of rainforest to obtain more land for various uses. This will have a negative impact on the environment.When clearing a piece of land, many living organisms will lose their natural habitats and homes. This will result in the living organisms having to homes to live and reproduce. When this happens, they may face the extinction of their whole population. When a population is wiped out, it will affect the other living organisms who feed on them and those whom are being fed by them. It will affect the environment??™s food chain and the food web. This is dangerous as we get our food sources mostly from some of the animals, without them, we will also die of hunger and lack of food source.When clearing land, the machines used will pollute the air with the smoke coming out from the machines. This will disrupt the natural cycles which may lead to global warming. Global warming is a very serious matter and it will cause climate changes, the depletion of the ozone layer and have a negative impact to the living organisms on Earth including us.We must do our part in protecting the environment.Governments can impose strict laws and regulations on hunting of animals. Hunters must not overhunt animals. In addition, the government can reserve some of the land as nature reserves, thus lesser land will be lost.Organizations can organize campaigns on conservation of the environment. They can also organize activities to help the environment which includes tree-planting, recycling and beach clean-ups.As individuals, we can play our part in helping the environment and conserving by using environmentally friendly products.
