Conservation — what does this term mean?


Conservation — what does this term mean? The definition is quite clear: recycle. I’ve noticed when people empty their trash, they are really throwing away still-good recyclables as well.
These also can be broken down into smaller sizes into different melting procedures instead of being burned as trash for tar to pave roads and highways across the United States and foreign countries.
Instead, if anyone could possibly pave roads with cement (this also is an environmentally friendly substance) and not tar, this would help little microscopic creatures have breathing space much easier. Tar pollutes the ground and makes the animals go elsewhere.
Another concern I have: We must do something with the growing problem about our diminishing animal kingdom. Some species of animals already became extinct, like the one type of Kansas reptile. This reptile was killed off out of fear and hate. What is the next generation going to study if all our wild animals go extinct?
Well, take for instance the mustang population. In about 15 more years, these beautiful creatures will be considered extinct. The government is helping cattle ranchers to eliminate these lovely horses from the entire planet altogether. Let me share something with you: I remember seeing a bumper sticker that said “Mustangs: For tools, not for Chopsticks.” I agree with this.
And just one other species of animals: The Bengal tiger is at risk in the wild, with only 50 or less left in the jungles.
Last but not least, our water and air and land systems. These elements are the most endangered of all things. Take for instance the marine mammals in the ocean. soon, all the species of these magnificent creatures will be extinct before the next generation will see them.
If we do not do something in the next few years, the land of this earth (rainforests, etc.) and the ozone layer that protects us, well, we have to do something to preserve our natural habitat from going extinct. It is better to be later than sorry, so to speak.
