By admin | March 23, 2013

Fishing is a relaxing recreational activity enjoyed by many people, and at first glance it might seem to be in direct opposition to environmental preservation. Large scale fishing operations may be harmful if practiced irresponsibly, but small scale fishing can benefit the environment in a number of ways.

The Importance of Conservation

By admin | February 23, 2012

Wilderness conservation goes a lot like the song where you “don’t know what you got until it’s gone.” Basically, one of the biggest reasons wilderness conservation is so important is because once we decimate a patch of wilderness or render a species extinct, we may never get it back.

If you like to live the green life and you get your energy through places like www.energysavings.com or the like, then you probably know a thing or two about conservation.

One of the reasons we must really fight to protect the wilderness is that many different forms of wildlife call these places home. Whenever some conglomerate wants to build a new headquarters or some franchise wants to knock out a patch of woods to build a new store, they threaten the livelihood of all the creatures living in the wild.

And, as you know, when these creatures are forced out of their homes they inevitably find themselves thrust into ours. Forced onto our streets where they are hit by cars, into our yards where they could threaten our children, and into our trash where they could get sick and eventually die.

That’s why it is so important to protect the wilderness and support conservation efforts. If we don’t speak for the animals, then who will?

By admin | September 21, 2011

As sophisticated as we like to consider ourselves, we are, at the end of the day, relatively simple creatures that require a few very basic things to survive”water, food, and air. We extract these basic things from the environment, which is already so polluted that in many cases we can’t consume them directly, but instead have to spend significant amounts of money cleaning them so that we don’t fall over dead when we do consume them.

Conservation isn’t just about having pretty things out the window. It is about Read the rest of this entry »

By admin | September 15, 2011

National parks are one of the main forms of recreation today. People go to the beach, boat on lakes and rivers, and hike trails in these national parks.
