Save Forest Save MankindWe humans have been cutting down tress to fulfill our basic needs. Trees are the major resource of our living. They give us oxygen. Oxygen is responsible for our breathing. It helps in our blood circulation. Forests are the home to multiple species of animals and birds. Many creatures are getting endangered and extinct because of the cutting down of forests. We need to protect and preserve them. Due to increasing urbanization, forests are being cut at a very fast pace. This has caused many species to lose their homes, and because of this, they roam around sometimes in cities. Few months back, there was a news in Haryana, that a leopard was found roaming on the road. When investigated, they came to know that because forests on Aravalli hills was being cut, this animal lost his home and that was why it ventured into the city in search of food. Later, some villagers killed the animal, to save their lives. Animals need to be protected and should not be killed to satisfy human needs.
The major effect that deforestation has caused is the depletion of our ozone layer. The layer which protects earth from the harmful radiations from the Sun; the layer which protects earth from the UV radiations that brings in great amount of heat. This layer has got a hole in it as we all know and the size of this hole is increasing day by day giving way to more harmful solar radiations. This is causing another major problem and that is Global warming, greenhouse effects etc. The temperature of earth is rising continuously which is causing a lot of changes in the weather conditions. The weather changes that we see, any time cold and any time hot weather, is due to the impact of global warming. Even in winter season, we do not experience much chill in the weather.
Trees protect us from heat, they keep the earth's temperature balanced by giving shade.
It is the need of the hour to protect these species and preserve our forests and our environment for the sake of mankind. Plant as many as trees possible. The more we plant them, the more our future generations will be safe and the more their lives will be saved.
