Short Essay on ‘Save Nature, Save Life’

‘Save Nature, Save Life’  

‘Save nature, save life’ is a slogan which needs to be spread and heard often in an effort to save the life –giving nature. In a reckless drive towards human centred development and industrialisation. Loss of habitat has endangered a number of animal species, and cutting of forests has left us losing many plant varieties. Nature maintains a fine balance. A seemingly useless insect like a bee causes the plant life to grow. If it were to be eliminated, there would be no pollination and many plant species would die. Saving any species in nature saves life.

Importance of nature for human life
