God has granted us paradise in the form of a biosphere supporting the life of flora and fauna. In this biosphere, the human being is the king of creations. There are countless natural resources present in different ecosystems. The greed of mankind has made them indifferent and they do not value natural resources. Human survival is at stake amid the growing problems of global warming and environmental pollution. Our forests are a source of income for many families.

Our survival depends on the availability of natural resources. The diversity of natural resources we have on this planet benefits human beings. Natural resources like forests, solar energy, wind power, lakes, rivers, etc. are the most important parts of our nature. Natural resources are classified into two categories, renewable and non-renewable energy resources. Oil is a natural resource. Formed from living plants buried for millions of years, this precious resource is becoming scarce today.

Oil is a non-renewable resource and takes a long time to form. The ecosystem makes our habitat comfortable and habitable. Forests are another precious resource. We need forest resources for economic development, the fight against pollution, the satisfaction of social needs, in constructions, for the production of oxygen, etc. It provides us with wood, wood, bamboo, medicines and above all it preserves biodiversity. However, every now and then our forest resources have been wiped out through deforestation. The reasons behind this are poverty, economic inequality, public ignorance and so on. Industrialization, transportation and other human activities pose a threat to the lives of humans, wild animals and plants.

Over the years, our natural resources are used rather exploited for the benefit of others. The exploitation of water resources is one example. Likewise, the forests, known as green gold, have been abused by smugglers and forest looters, without any inference from the government. Human interference in the forest and wildlife habitats has not only disrupted the natural ecology, but has forced wild animals to turn to human habitat, leading to an increase in the number of human-animal conflicts. The role of political leadership is indisputable in safeguarding and securing our natural resources.

We must protect natural resources, if not for the present generation, but for generations to come. We should not be prejudiced and ensure our love and likeness for natural resources. We must respect sustainable development and cooperate with each other. We must take care of natural assets and it is the responsibility of every citizen to preserve natural resources. If our resources are to be spared, people have to push the government up and out of sleep. It is time to raise public awareness about preserving natural resources and conserving biodiversity. If it is necessary to use and exploit natural resources, which are of course intended for improvement, it must be realized that excess of everything is bad. People must be judicious in the use of natural resources.
