Let’s protect our green wealth from forest fires
Human life has been directly connected with the flora and fauna for thousands of years. To be more precise, it is impossible to imagine the earth, water, nature and the flora and fauna in it in isolation from human life. The mercy of the Creator to us is so incomparable that the whole being that surrounds us is not only a source of life, but also gives us the joy of beauty, living and enjoyment. The fact that the plant world alone adds life to our lives is a testament to the inextricable link between nature and social life. It is up to humanity to do the best it can to maintain these connections and ensure their eternity.
No matter how much man loves nature, no matter how much he respects it, sometimes he suffers even more than himself. For example, in different parts of the world, lightning strikes in forests due to lightning or extreme drought are causing forest fires in forests. Sometimes, due to human negligence and carelessness, thousands of hectares of forests and pastures are on fire, causing the extinction of existing flora and fauna. We all know that the origin of forest fires causes great harm to nature and humanity. This not only tarnishes the beauty of the forest, but also leads to a sharp decrease in the amount of oxygen released from it, the deterioration of soil composition, the disappearance of beneficial insects and microorganisms. Scientists estimate that more than 2 million tons of organic matter is lost to forest fires worldwide each year.
According to statistics, in 99 percent of cases, the origin of forest fires in the forests was directly due to humanity, and in the remaining 1 percent due to natural disasters.
