Environmental conservation involves the careful use and
protection of our natural resources.
This Earth serves not only as our one and only habitat in this universe but it is also our natural heritage as it is passed on from one generation to the next.
The next generation of human beings shall inherit this earth in the condition that we leave it. What our future children will have will depend directly on this generation of ours and hence it is our responsibility and duty to care for the environment today.
Many people do not realise the importance of looking after this fragile environment of ours. They take many things for granted and never think of conserving some of the natural resources we have today. They also think that the resources we have will never run out and we can continuously draw resources from the earth to make our lives easier and more comfortable.
Environmental problems such as depletion of natural resources, water pollution and global warming have all resulted mainly from human activities. However, not all is lost, as we can still do our part for the earth through environmental conservation.
Environmental conservation is the careful use of natural resources to ensure that there is enough for the future and ensuring that damage done to the environment will be minimum.
Conservation also involves minimising the negative impacts caused by environmental problems. For example, CFCs have caused the depletion of the ozone layer. We may not be able to close this hole up but we can stop it from growing bigger by reducing the amount of CFCs released into the atmosphere.
