HELP SAVE THE PLANET
new technologies make us forget about nature. The Earth, also known as The Green Planet is threatened by man.
People have polluted the sea, the air; they have made and used atomic bombs.
Part one- Wildlife
By the year
2030, about 25% of all the animals and birds may be extinct.
first reason is POLLUTION of the
animals’ habitat. Millions of animals die every year because man has polluted
their natural habitat.
second reason is HUNTING.
third reason is that there’s too LITTLE
SPACE for animals to live in. Every year man cuts down more trees and
builds more roads.
Part two- Pollution
serious pollution problems are:
ACID RAIN. Gases and
chemicals mix with water in the air. The mixture travels for hundreds of miles
and finally falls back on earth. Because in contains a lot of chemicals it
kills fish and trees.
THE GREENHOUSE EFFECT. Some gases and
chemicals stay in the air like a blanket around the world. Because of this
blanket, the Earth’s climate is getting hotter.
Part three- Animals in danger
there are a lot of rare animals under the threat of extinction:
The Mountain Gorilla. There are
probably about 600 mountain gorillas left in Central Africa. They don’t have
enough forests to live in.
The Black Rhinoceros. All rhinos are
extremely rare today. But the black rhino, which lives mainly in Zimbabwe, is
the most threatened by the illegal trade in rhino horn. There may be less then
3500 alive today.
The African Elephant. Once there were
millions of elephants in Africa. Today only about 600000 are left They are
killed for their ivory.
The Yangtze River Dolphin, also known as
Baiji River Dolphin. There are only about 300 left in China. They are
threatened by pollution, hunting and motorboat traffic.
Part four- Poem
Don’t kill the
kill the world
Don’t let her down She’s all we have
Do not destroy the
basic ground And surely is
worth to save
Don’t kill the
let her die
Our means of life Fight for her
Lend ear to Nature’s cry. Pollution robs air to
