Nature has always provided us everything what we need for life. Man has needed wood to make a fire or to build a shelter, animals to eat. Later he has needed more and more, land to build a house, to plant plants etc. The evolution has been very fast. Now we advance very fast too. Today is already the past and tomorrow is the future.
 
The world´s population grows and people need and want more. They clear land to build more houses, use fertilizers to plant more plants, build factories to produce more goods. They use vehicles, build power stations to produce more energy. But it´s very dangerous, the industry and technologies have damaged and destroyed nature. Everything has resulted in changes. Our environment is changing.
 
Air, water and soil are polluted, our planet is warming more and more from year to year. There are lot of problems. We have used CFC´s in refrigeration, in airconditioning. CFC´s can destroy the ozon layer, which protects us from ultraviolet radition, which can cause skin cancer, eye damage etc. We use chemicals, which can get into clouds and make acid rain, which pollutes soil. This chemicals are from factories and from products we use too. Our cars produce exhaust fumes, which pollute air.
 
People should come to one´s sense and begin to protect the Earth and our environment. The danger is very high. The polar icecaps are melting, sea levels are rising, scientist predict that some seaside areas will disappear under the sea in the future. Earthquakes are more frequent, palnts and animals are in danger of extinction. We should do something with it , if we want to save our planet and our lives too.

Questions

1. What pollution can you see in the place where you live?
There are factories, which produce evaporations, they get into the air and pollute it. There is also lot of rubbish, which pollutes soil.
 
2. How can an individual help protect  the environment?
I think it can help. If everyone do it, it will be better. For example we can sort the rubbish, can use any fertilizers in our gardens. We can shopping by bargs, use public transport.
 
3. Which of these activities have been used by your family?
We planted some trees and plants in garden and in our balcony. I usually use the public transport. We save energy at home and buy environmenatlly friendly products.
 
4. What are the positives/negatives of zoos, game reserves and safari parks.
There are also positives and negatives. Positive is that these animals are protected from hunters. They can live longer. There are some people who take care of them. On the other hand these animals have only few of place for living.
