because they might be all gone some day in the future
It all starts from the process of the three R's. Reduce, Re-use and Recycle. Natural resources such as fresh water, trees, and animals have all been hugely affected because …we haven't been contributing to conserving them at all. Besides the three R's, some key points to conserving natural resources are; 1) Affective transportation modes - carpooling, taking the bus (burns less fossil fuels/less pollution) 2) Don't litter. - pollutants go into the ground and come up through precipitation into the atmosphere, one huge cause of the damage of the ozone layer. - pollutants are also going into the fresh water systems affecting wildlife, animals and ourselves. 3) Less energy/water use - turn off lights/products that produce electricity - use less water ; shorter showers, don't leave taps running etc.
You can help save natural resources and conserve them by many different ways. One of them is to recycle. Another one is to turn off the water while brushing your teeth or putt…ing soap on your hands. You can also plants trees, which will also save natural resources. Natural resources can be conserved by the wise and judicious use of them without wasting them or replacing them whenever possible. They should be utilized without causing any ecological imbalance in nature.
You can try to consume less as an individual, by doing things such as recycling, alternative transportation; such as bicycles. Here are some examples. Turn lights off when y…ou leave a room. Turn household appliances off when you're not using them. Use canvas bags rather than paper or plastic when shopping. Make use of reusable containers; such as metal bottles for water, instead of disposable plastic or styrofoam ones. Also, you can start some community projects; such as car pools. These are just a few suggestions. There are dozens of other things you can do to conserve energy and resources. You just have to use your imagination!
Conserve means to prevent lost of something. Natural resources are raw materials such as coals, oil, fossil fuels, rock and mineral resources,etc. So they want you to prev…ent lost of coals, fossil fuels, oil, rock and mineral resources,etc. In other words, is to save the world...
Think globally, act locally. Start at home by taking shorter showers, turning off electrical appliances when they are not being used, walking or biking more and driving less, …setting the air-conditioner to come on at a higher temperature and the furnace to come on at a lower temperature.
conservation:it doesn't cost saves. energy conserved is energy made
Natural resources should be conserved because in the future we will be needing resources such as oil and petrol for many purposes and instead of using fossil fuels for produci…ng energy and polluting environment and it improves the life span of it.
using resources to restore the environment
don't be mean go green
Air, water, soil, forests, animals, etc., that are provided by nature or occur naturally are called natural resources. Some of these natural resources like sunlight and wind a…re renewable resources. This means that they can be used again and again without being exhausted. But some like forests, minerals, oil, etc., are non-renewable. We know that man depends on his environment. We need our environment and the things it provides us for staying alive. Animals and plants also depend on the environment for their survival. Over a period of time, we have used up a lot of these resources. We need to conserve and preserve these resources or soon they will be exhausted. 1. Preservation of forests and wild animals: We need to stop destroying forests and cutting trees. Forests are the home to many different animals, birds and insects. Many animals like the leopard, the Indian Wild Ass, the great Indian one-horned Rhinocerous, etc. have become endangered and are close to extinction because of the destruction of their natural habitat. Trees give us wood that helps in making so many things like furniture, paper, etc. Trees help in purifying the air and also hold the soil with their roots and stop soil erosion. We must protect our forests. This can be done in the following ways : We must control the cutting of trees and plant more trees. We must prevent forest fires. 2. Converting forests to National Parks and Bird Sanctuaries: The government has now started protecting forests by converting them into national parks and wildlife or bird sanctuaries. Cutting of trees or killing of birds and animals is not allowed here and is punishable by the law. Grazing or cultivating of the land is also prohibited. Some national parks of India are marked on the map given alongside. The Kaziranga National Park in Assam is famous for one-horned rhinoceros. Bird sanctuaries are areas where birds are protected and encouraged to breed. The Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary is one of the biggest bird sanctuaries in India. It houses more than 415 kinds of birds, out of which many birds like the Siberian crane, flycatchers, buntings, etc., migrate from places as far away as Siberia and China. 3. Preservation of soil: Soil is a very important natural resource. Man and animals depend on plants for their food and plants get nourishment from the soil. So we can say that all living things depend on soil for their food. The process of wind, rain or rivers carrying away the top fertile layer of soil is called soil erosion. Cutting of trees or deforestation, strong winds in places of less vegetation (deserts), running of water bodies over the soil and overgrazing are all causes of soil erosion. We can prevent it by the following methods : i) Forestation or planting trees as their roots hold the soil together. Cultivating the soil also provides it cover and prevents wind from blowing it away, ii) Terrace or step farming done on slopes of hills slows the speed of water flowing down and reduces soil erosion. iii) Building embankments on river banks prevents soil erosion by the rivers. 4. Preservation of minerals: We must use minerals sensibly as they are non-renewable natural resources. There is only a limited amount of oil, limestone, iron, coal, etc., found in the Earth. We should use renewable and non-polluting sources of energy like solar energy, wind energy, etc., instead of coal and oil so that they can last longer. 5. Windmill is used to harness wind energy: Though some resources like air, water, soil, etc., are renewable we should use them carefully as their pollution has affect on plants and animals too. Even a small change in environment or the quality of natural resources affects life around it. You should always conserve natural resources because they are dying out.It is very important to preserve natural resources because when they run out civilization will turn to ruin.The challenge of conservation is to understand the complex connections among natural resources and balance resource use with protection to ensure an adequate supply for future generations. In order to accomplish this goal, a variety of conservation methods are used. These include reducing consumption of resources; protecting them from contamination or pollution; reusing or recycling resources when possible; and fully protecting, or preserving, resources. Consumption of natural resources rises dramatically every year as the human population increases and standards of living rise. Between 1950 and 1990 the world population doubled to 5.3 billion, with nearly 80 percent living in developing, or poorer, nations. The large, developed nations, however, are responsible for the greatest consumption of natural resources because of their high standards of living. Conservation education and the thoughtful use of resources is necessary in the developed countries to reduce natural-resource consumption.To protect natural resources from pollution, individuals, industries, and governments have many obligations. These include prohibiting or limiting the use of pesticides and other toxic chemicals, limiting wastewater and airborne pollutants, preventing the production of radioactive materials, and regulating drilling and transportation of petroleum products. Failure to do so results in contaminated air, soil, rivers, plants, and animals. Some resources are so unique or valuable that they are protected from activities that would destroy or degrade them. Forests and wetlands (areas with high soil moisture or surface water) may be protected from development because they enhance air and water quality and provide habitat for a wide variety of plants and animals. Unfortunately, these areas are often threatened with development because it is difficult to measure the economic benefits of cleaner air, cleaner water, and the many other environmental benefits of these ecosystems (the plants and animals of a natural community and their physical environment).
windmills are generated by windand are used to generate electricity. Nowadays, electricity are generated by dams which are very harmful for the natural resources .
reduce, reuse, recycle. go to the bathroom don't flush and wait till the end of the day to flush that is using less water. turn off the lights and/or turn the faucet off when …not using
ConservatioThe main natural resources of India are iron ore, bauxite, and copper ore. India is one of the major producers of iron in the world. Iron ore is found all over Indi…a, the major contributers being the states of Bihar and Orissa. A quarter of all mining is carried out in the southern part of Orissa. Gold, silver, and diamonds make up a small part of other natural resources available in India. The gemstones are found in Rajasthan. Major portion of the energy in India is generated from coal. It is estimated that India has around 120 billion tons of coal in reserve, enough to last for around 120 years. Huge reserves of petroleum have been found off the coast of Maharashtra and Gujarat. Electrical energy generated by hydroelectric power, coal, and nuclear energy. Half of the hydroelectric power is generated by snowfield reservoirs high up in the Himalayas. Huge dams have also been built accross many major rivers to produce electricity and water for irrigation. In villages around India, people use wood or dried cow-dung cakes as fuel for cooking and heating water. The demand for firewood and the increasing population is affecting the existing forests. It is estimated each year 3.7 million acres of forest are cut down to provide timber, paper pulp and firewood n of natural resources in india?
By conserving natural resources you can benefit from them for longer
