The resource we need to save

Would you mind helping me correct the essay about the topic below? Thank you very much.

Topic: Many parts of the world are losing important natural resources, such as forests, animals, or clean water. Choose one resource that is disappearing and explain why it needs to be saved. Use specific reasons and examples to support your opinion.

People often say “golden forest – silver sea”. It is not unreasonable that people conclude like that. Because the forest is a very rich resource, it has hidden treasures and is always ready to serve human life. Forests bring a lot of benefits to people, so people have to protect them. Nowadays, many parts of the world are losing important natural resources, such as forests, animals, clean water and so on. Especially, forests are disappearing and they need to be saved.

First and foremost, forests play an important role in preserving the atmosphere and improving air pollution, which is a global problem. Thanks to the inherent function of photosynthesis of plants in general, trees in particular, the atmosphere is significantly improved through the “natural gas purifier” that are forests when they constantly absorb carbon emissions and release oxygen, which also supplies a great deal of oxygen to humans. Instead of applying difficult measures such as minimizing transportation or consuming fuel, afforestation is the measure showing the most positive and clear results.

In the second place, forests prevent soil erosion. Natural forests in general bring great benefits to land protection, regulate the amount of water in rivers and reservoirs, limit the dryness of water for consumption or industrial water in the dry season and reduce amount of water for reservoirs, rivers and streams in the rainy season. Not only that, coastal protection forests also play an important role, in order to shield flying sand, flowing sand, prevent mobile sand in the coast, protect land, sea dykes and improve acidic soil due to mangrove.

Finally, forests are also the nurturing habitats of precious animals such as tigers, leopards, deer, elephants and many exotic birds. We have a comfortable living environment why we ruin their lives. The whole world of animals is so rich that it is an invaluable resource of forests for humans.

To sum up briefly, it can be seen that forests are an extremely precious resource that nature has bestowed upon them, bringing many benefits to our lives. Therefore, we need to work together to protect forests, maintain and protect available resources by actively participating in mobilizing people to plant forests. Protecting forests is protecting our own life, you and me, let’s protect the environment together.


Surely planting trees is an important activity if we are to save our environment but unfortunately it is not enough. As a matter of fact you are missing the most important aspects when it comes to preserving our forests and woods. Here is a hint: It has to do with GDP and wealth distribution.
