Take a look around you. Whether you’re seated in a forest clearing or a cubicle, the Earth is all around you.
The natural world is the source of every important resource humanity has ever needed. These range from wood for building to crystals for computer chips. Our very society is built upon our diverse, dynamic environment.
That’s just one reason why caring about nature is important. We’ve created this guide to share the top reasons why caring for the environment should be a priority.
Keep reading to learn how taking care of nature helps everyone thrive, including you!
Why Should We Care About the Environment?
Why is it important to take care of the environment? The biggest reason is to ensure our Earth will remain healthy and habitable for years to come.
This planet is unique, as it is the only known rock in space that is bursting with life. Many of the resources here are finite, however. If we exhaust those resources, humanity may struggle to maintain its current quality of life.
Here are a few other reasons why nature and caring go hand-in-hand.
Ecosystems and Evolution
It took millions (or even billions) of years for some of our planet’s most dynamic ecosystems to evolve. You cannot regrow or regenerate a tropical rainforest or coral reef in a lifetime, or even two. Today, more than 10,000 tropical species are at high risk of extinction. Likewise, experts predict that, at our current rate of global warning, the Great Barrier Reef will be gone by year 2050.
We were lucky enough to enjoy the beauty and diversity of the natural world in our lifetimes. Don’t we owe that to future generations?
Human Health Matters
You’ve heard “You are what you eat.” The truth is, you also are where you live. Air quality has a massive impact on human health.
Likewise, our treatment of animals is breeding new infectious diseases. Our recent global pandemic had such origins. If we aren’t careful, we may see more public health emergencies in our lifetime.
