Trees are necessary for our survival on this planet. Trees, like all plants, produce oxygen through the photosynthesis process.

10 Easy Things You Can Do To Help Preserve Wildlife

10 Easy Things You Can Do To Help Preserve Wildlife

In our previous blogs, we talked about some critically endangered species of animals and birds that are gradually decreasing in population in nature, or facing extinction, due to our negative impacts on nature. Humans are harming the wildlife in many ways and causing many species of animals, birds, and insects to disappear overtime. We have also talked about how biodiversity in nature is important for the ecology to function properly, and all members or components of the ecology play an important role. In this blog we are going to discuss 10 things that you can easily do to help the wildlife, and stop other animals from losing their habitat or food. So instead of becoming a problem for the wildlife, you could try to become a part of the solution.

Rivers, prairies, forests, wetlands, oceans, and everything else in nature is the cradle for wildlife, which are disappearing rapidly. Habitat is the place where all living things find favorable conditions to survive, reproduce, and thrive. Pollution, land development, deforestation, and natural disasters are a few reasons why the wildlife and the number of species are decreasing rapidly today. When habitat is threatened or destroyed, the wildlife living in the habitat is threatened as well. When roads or new developments destroy the habitats of wild animals, they must move and find new places to thrive, putting pressure on the ecology and nature. For example, an oil disaster can jeopardize the living conditions of sea turtles in the ocean.
