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.

One of the fastest depleting resources is the oil and gas. As the population is increasing continuously, basic needs for fresh water, food, housing and fuel make unprecedented demands on our global and local ecosystems. Additionally there is great demand for more material goods and services. As we strive to increase material wealth, comforts and conveniences, the pressure on biodiversity and natural resources tremendously increase. Overpopulation calls for enormous housing constructions this causes trees falling and jungle cutting thereby causing imbalance of ecology resulting into loss of animal life. In addition, more vehicles are needed that cause environment pollution. And heat emission by automobiles adds to Global Warming.

Because of numerous automobiles and their use, one of the fastest depleting resources is the oil and gas. This is a non-renewable resource that cannot be re-made, re-grown or regenerated in proportion to its consumption. The rate of consumption of oil and gas is much higher than its rate of reformation by nature.

Greater demand of housing and industrialization causes deforestation having an adverse effect on ecology and animal life. The needs for water and power have also skyrocketed. Loss of cattle results into shortage of milk and dairy products. Many farmers employ bullocks in carts and also for cultivating fields. Furthermore horses, donkeys, camels and elephants are employed for transport, running of carriages, lifting and shifting of heavy loads. Similarly sheep is used for production of wool. Chickens and eggs are used as food for humans. Therefore it is important to protect species and live in harmony.

Summarizing, the fastest depleting resource of oil and gas that take millions of years to re-form naturally and cannot be replaced as fast as it is consumed, it is vital to conserve and protect this resource from extinction.
