is in Danger!
Every day we hear about environmental
The destruction of rainforests
and other wild habitats
The environment is all the things we need to be able to live - clean water to drink , air to breathe and healthy food to eat.
We can’t live without
plants and animals.
They help to make the
soil, they clean the
water and air, and they give us all our
The world is our home and we want to see it clean and
At the same time we take from nature as much as we can.
We cut down forests
Build farms, houses, roads and
factories on the land.
Chemical waste pollute river water, killing
wildlife .The pollution affects the health
of people and animals.
We make a lot of waste.
Some of which is TOXIC.
We pour toxic waste into
our rivers, lakes, seas and
It is necessary to help wild animals.
Many of them are in danger now.
For example, pandas which live in the jungle and white bears which live in the Arctic.
The last of these large quiet birds died many years
By the 1690s there were no dodos in the world.
Acid rains are dangerous for
animals, plants, water and people.
Forest fires are one of the greatest natural destroyers
of our forests.
Each year fires burn millions of hectares of forest all over the world.
Rainforests are very dense, warm
and wet forests.
Rainforests are found on every
continent across the Earth,
They cover only 6% of the Earth’s
surface but yet they contain more
than a half of the world’s plant and animal species.
They are in danger!
The Earth has been getting hotter because we are producing too many greenhouse gases.
Because the Earth is
getting hotter, ice is melting.
Scientists say that in 2050
some parts of Great Britain
will be under the sea.
