The Selfishness of Man’s Life and the Conservation of Nature

This article focuses on nature and human intervention. How does man end his life? This article is about human awareness for nature.

Revolution Of Human Life And Loss Of Nature

Today, in the 21st century, human life is equipped with the latest conveniences. We are seeing concrete forests, vehicles, mobile revolutions, towers, use of chemicals, overuse of minerals, junk food, fashion, mechanical resources, increasing use of plastics, constant increase in deadly waste, increasing pollution, infestation, corruption, animal poaching, deforestation. It is destroying nature by creating all these dangers, at the same time weakening our human life.

Once upon a time, I used to wake up in the morning to hear the birds chirping, but now I wake up because of the noise pollution of vehicles. There are conflicts between wildlife and humans are on the rise. There are also valuable mineral reserves, rare wildlife and medicinal plants are rapidly disappearing from the earth. We all know the nature of rivers flowing through the city. There are Local Government, National and International Administrations have set rules for the conservation of nature, but the rules are being violated on a large scale.

According to the Indian Forest Survey, a total of 367 sq. km. of forests have been destroyed in the country between 2009 and 2011. Natural forests in India are declining at a rate of 1.5 to 2.7 per cent per annum. Thus on the one hand we are increasing pollution. On the other hand, we are destroying the forests that prevent pollution. The serious consequences of this are now beginning to show. Pollution deaths have risen by 300 percent worldwide since 2000. About 65% of these deaths occur in Asia.

According to a report released by the Intergovernmental Science Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services, about one million species of animals and plants are on the verge of extinction due to increasing human intervention, climate change and global warming. According to the Global Legal Wildlife Trade Report, the value of international legal wildlife trade has increased by 500% since 2005 and by 2000% since 1980. The global wildlife trade, on the other hand, is estimated to be worth about ७ 7–23 billion annually which about 25% of the legal market value is.

Human Intervention And Nature

The most dangerous animal in the world is the human. Man is not afraid to harm anyone because of his selfishness and greed. Nature has always provided human beings with abundant life and necessities. The raw material required for the production of every commodity is also obtained by nature. But human beings are robbing nature beyond their rights and expectations.

For human welfare and development, there are administration, education law, commissions, institutions, voting, money, relationships and many other sophisticated amenities, yet man suffers from some problem and wanders for solution. If there is not even a single day of running water in the city, then the daily life of human beings is disrupted.

In many places during the summer, human beings travel long distances for the convenience of water. So what happens to wildlife in such a situation? Think about it, if wild animals have a problem, where do they go for justice?

The World Bank estimates that about 3.9 million square miles (10 million square kilometers) of forest have been destroyed since the beginning of the 20th century. In the last 25 years, forests have decreased by 502,000 square miles (1.3 million square kilometers). Larger than the size of South Africa In 2018, The Guardian reported that every second a part of the jungle the size of a soccer field is lost.

There are highways, companies, farmhouses, hotels are being built by cutting down trees from green areas in the name of development. As a result, the animals are moved elsewhere. As a result, the movement of animals is restricted. Their natural habitat is destroyed. Everyone loves to walk around the lush green nature, but no one has time to nurture it.

Every few days, newspapers report on wildlife poaching, dead wildlife, related accidents, and wildlife attacks. The Conservation Lens and Wildlife report states that in the first 81 days of 2021, 39 Bengal tigers lost their lives, while official sources recorded the deaths of 16 tigers. There are causes include physical injury, hunger, hunting, loss of habitat, or collisions with speeding vehicles.

Man Is Ending His Own Existence

Maharashtra tops the list, followed by Madhya Pradesh. In 2019, the number of man-made fires in Brazil skyrocketed. As of August 2019, there were more than 80,000 fires in the Amazon. According to National Geographic, this is an increase of almost 80% compared to 2018. The World Wildlife Crime Report 2020 draws attention to the problem of smuggling of pangolins, birds, turtles, tigers, bears and other wild species. Many species of the world are on the verge of extinction due to wildlife smuggling.

More than 25% of the medicines we use are made by rainforest plants. However, only 1% of rainforest plants have been studied for their medicinal properties. An average of 40% of the rainfall on the ground is caused by evaporation from plants. According to a 2018 FAO report, three-quarters of the world’s freshwater comes from forest watersheds, and plant damage affects water quality.

Migratory birds and other wildlife travel thousands of miles around the world, but never lose sight of the path. Birds build their nests as beautifully carved, accurately predicting each season, and if birds and animals are trained, they are more loyal than humans. Most of the time, the wild animals live in groups and follow the orders of the head of the group and take care of nature. Dirt from wildlife and birds is also a boon to nature.

Wildlife communicate with each other, understand each other’s feelings. In fact, it is wildlife and birds that enrich forests, nature, and give impetus to human life. Where nature is rich, sources of pure water and pure oxygen are abundant, and herbivorous forests are rich. For that soil fertility is maintained. So quality crop is produced. In such places disease is less and human life span is longer. Enjoys a pleasant atmosphere and nutritious food. The problem of global warming is reduced and the protection of the ozone layer is increased. The weather cycle goes smoothly. Man is ending his own existence without ending nature.
