How to conserve biodiversity?We can conserve biodiversity by avoiding every step that may kill a living being including plants, animals and birds. It does not mean we let every living being go even if it harms us like snake, scorpion or lizard. First we have to check which animals, birds and plants population is a minimum in number. They are called endangered species. They are those living beings for whom this planet has not remained congenial for living. There is wildlife conservation service in every country. Both governments and conservation groups try hard to retain biodiversity. But environmental degradation makes it difficult for many endangered species to increase their population.
Environmental degradation the main hurdleWhat is environmental degradation? It is a state in water, land or air where natural features of each are reduced by external encroachments of various elements not good for them.
They may be in air, land or water. If something disturbs the natural features of land we say it a land pollutant. If it hits air we say it air pollutant like poisonous gases that come from vehicles and factories. If something harms the water we call it water pollutant like various chemicals that come with effluent of factories.So, environmental degradation makes life difficult to survive on Earth. Living beings don’t have clean air to breathe, pure water to drink and safe land to live on it. As a result various living species get weaker and sick. Most of them die earlier than their natural death. While many species with small population go to the brink of extinction. Then wildlife conservation groups and activists declare such species endangered and take extra efforts to conserve them. So to make biodiversity conservation a real goal we need to control environmental degradation that is main cause of concern.
