Conservation of Planet Earth

Conservation is the act of guarding, preserving or protecting and wise use.

 Conservation may refer to:
 Main usage: Conservation (ethic) of biodiversity, environment, and natural resources, including protection and management (Wikipedia, 2014).
Today's technology is moving at a fast pace. Inputs required to manufacture certain products mostly include natural resources.

Natural resources occur naturally within environments that exist relatively undisturbed by humanity, in a natural form. A natural resource is often characterized by amounts of biodiversity and geodiversity existent in various ecosystems. Natural resources are derived from the environment. Some of them are essential for our survival while most are used for satisfying our wants. Natural resources may be further classified in different ways. Natural resources are materials and components (something that can be used) that can be found within the environment. Every man-made product is composed of natural resources (at its fundamental level). A natural resource may exist as a separate entity such as fresh water, and air, as well as a living organism such as a fish, or it may exist in an alternate form which must be processed to obtain the resource such as metal ores, oil, and most forms of energy. There is much debate worldwide over natural resource allocations, this is partly due to increasing scarcity (depletion of resources) but also because the exportation of natural resources is the basis for many economies (particularly for developed nations such as Australia). Some natural resources such as sunlight and air can be found everywhere, and are known as ubiquitous resources. However, most resources only occur in small sporadic areas, and are referred to as localized resources. There are very few resources that are considered inexhaustible (will not run out in foreseeable future) – these are solar radiation, geothermal energy, and air (though access to clean air may not be). The vast majority of resources are exhaustible, which means they have a finite quantity, and can be depleted if managed improperly (Wikipedia, 2014).
 It is heart-rending to see many people in oblivion. Millions of trees are cut down everyday and there is little afforestation taking place. End result; Inadequate oxygen, habitats destroyed, basically disturbing the ecosystem of that particular environment and EXTINCTION!!! Animals are of great importance to human beings (they provide food, clothing and protection). HOWEVER, if the population of animals is decreasing constantly, if poaching is not curbed then the end result is EXTINCTION!!!

EXTINCTION is when something is "no longer in existence". In short, let us start conserving the nature. It is not late to make a change but if we delay, we are to be responsible of the loss of mother nature. It is in our own hands to adorn nature. Animals and plants need care and protection. Where ever you are, try to do this in your community;

 Animals: Lethal or not, try to contact any wildlife authority/organisation so that they can take care of the animal without harming it. In most cases, we see stray dogs and cats in the streets, searching for food in bins and other dirty places. Call the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals  and they can help those stray cats and dogs to find a better home.
Plants: Ask neighbours, family and friends to help you approach the nearest council in your community or city so that you may get extended support in establishing and protecting a woodland, planning for future needs and evaluating various aspects of urban forest management. You may also plant a family tree around your home. 

Watch this video, it is all about conservation of nature. #n101x
