Our Forests: Our World

This post was written by a student. It has not been fact checked or edited.

O ur forest defines who we are and it is the foundation of our existance . The fores ecosystem supports living things including plants , animals , insects and people within an interactive environment. One most resilient ecosystems is found in forests. This is because there is very little effect form the wheather and human activities. Sadly in recent times human activities have souly altered the parttern of our forests ,thus the pattern of the world.

Activites such as Illegal mining , Deforestation and Illegal logging has affected our forests by reducing the population of trees and ecosystems . Illegal mining activites not only reduce the size of forsts but also pollute waterbodies causing illness , baby deformation and death. Deforestatio is amajor problem to our forest and our envirnoment, forests cleared realses carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. Lossing and damaging is the cause of around 10% of global warming. Illegal logging leads to loss of trees and vegetation causing temperture change , desertification, fewer crops ,floodings, increased green house gases within the atmosphere and a number of problems for for indigenous people. Illegal logging drives biodiversity loss and temperature change.

With the world faing all these crisis people will be facing severe pain consequences leading to end of mankind existance. But I believe these issues can the resolved positively, Reforestation is a critical part of the solution to climate change ,restoring previous degrading ecosystems providing essential habitats for threaten species .

Planting more trees in communties can spend awareness and increase our oxugen rate, Organizations donating plantin plants can help people revive our forests to its natural beauty.

  • I really like how you mentioned ecosystems and that has not been brought upon in other topical talk discussions about Earth day. Hence, I would like to elaborate on that particular topic. The ecosystem is like dominoes, if one collapses, all of the others do to. That is why many centres or rehabilitation zoos provide animals with enough provisions and replications of their wildlife habitat to increase their population. Think about it, if the species of grasshopper die out then the frog will have nothing to eat, then the snake will will not have any frogs to consume then the eagle will be left with no snakes to eat. And one by one, even if we think the tiniest of puny,paltry preys are pointless, they make much bigger impacts then we think they do. Frankly, it is the circle of life and this is the way it works. Preys, predators, omnivores, carnivores and so on. All we can do, is try to prevent poaching and decrease the amount of meat we purchase.

  • I agree because... Our forest defines who we are, and it is the foundation of our existence. The forest ecosystem supports a diverse array of life, including plants, animals, insects, and people, all thriving within an interconnected environment. Among the most resilient ecosystems, forests have historically been minimally impacted by weather and human activities. Regrettably, recent times have witnessed a profound alteration in our forests, consequently reshaping the pattern of the entire world.

    Illegal mining, deforestation, and illegal logging have relentlessly impacted our forests, leading to a reduction in tree populations and the disruption of entire ecosystems. Illegal mining not only diminishes the size of our forests but also contaminates water bodies, resulting in illness, deformities, and even death. Deforestation emerges as a critical problem, as the clearing of forests releases substantial amounts of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. The loss and degradation of forests account for approximately 10% of global warming. Moreover, illegal logging exacerbates the loss of trees and vegetation, causing temperature fluctuations, desertification, reduced crop yields, flooding, heightened greenhouse gas levels in the atmosphere, and numerous hardships for indigenous communities. It also drives the alarming loss of biodiversity.

    The ramifications of these crises are dire, and humanity is bound to suffer severe consequences, potentially jeopardizing our very existence. Nevertheless, I firmly believe that these issues can be positively addressed. Reforestation emerges as a critical component in combating climate change and rehabilitating degraded ecosystems, thereby providing essential habitats for threatened species.

    By planting more trees in our communities and raising awareness, we can increase oxygen levels and restore the natural beauty of our forests. Additionally, organizations that donate plants and actively support reforestation efforts play a pivotal role in reviving our forests and securing a sustainable future for all."
    As we reflect on the crucial role that forests play in our lives and the devastating impact of human activities on these precious ecosystems, one thought lingers in our minds: Will we allow our forests to continue fading away, diminishing the very essence of our existence, or will we take a stand to restore, protect, and cherish them for generations to come? The answer to this mind-boggling question holds the key to our collective future and the legacy we leave behind. The time to act is now, for in the delicate balance of our forests lies the destiny of our planet.
