This plant and animal habitat is spread all over the planet from; rain forest to hot deserts and from the frozen areas to the depth of the ocean, all of our Earth is filled with living beauty.
Of course human beings are a major part of this whole ecosystem and play a major role in its prosperity. We are in other words responsible for the preservation of everything around us. This is because we are the only creation on this Earth that can think and do stuff that no other living creature can do. So taking this into account it is upon us to preserve the beauty of nature.
Since the last century mankind has been taking some small and some big steps in trying to preserve the natural wonders around us. One big step in this regard is making of National Parks.
