In past resources were limited, the air was fresh and water was clean and clear. But in very short time man has disturbed the balance of nature and if we are not careful, we will proceeds towards the gradual collapse balance of nature. Our environment is now a social problem, not just a problem for scientists. Air, water and land pollution is the main cause of destroying environment. A dirty lake or river not only affects those who live near it but it also affects aquatic life and entire ecosphere.

“Look Outside, see the trees
Watch the flowers in the breeze
Things won't be like this in a year or two
If polluting is all we do
Seize the night
Seize the day
Things won't always be .........”.
There is strong and intricate relationship between living things and their environment. Every living thing plays a part in ecosystem. There is food chain in which the green plants are eaten by small animals which in turn are eaten by larger animals. The closing point of this food chain comes when bacteria and fungi decomposes all the dead bodies. This process returns the useful nutrients for the use of producers. Population of all the animals is also controlled by natural forces like diseases and prediction. Change in food chain or change on population of animals carries wide spread and often unexpected repercussions. For example; the campaign waged in South Africa against the Hippopotami disturbed the balance of environment. As a result there came floods which damage homes and crops.

From ocean depths to mountain peaks,
Mother Nature moves and speaks.
While telling stories of our past
She tries to teach us how .........”.
Pure and clean environment is essential for humans, animals and plant life. It is also the fact that the ecosystem is in danger. Pollution is on the rise. So the government should take this problem seriously. Public should also play the due role in keeping the environment clean. Action groups should be formed to ensure passage of environmental legislation. Every part of the ecosystem is dependent on each others. In the same way society also depends upon all his members. So, all the members of society must treat this problem seriously.
I hope you will get my point and will make the environment clean as possible. Thanks a lot.
