IELTS Essay /Human impact on plants and animals

Updated: May 29, 2022

Human activity has had a negative impact on plants and animals around the world. Some people think that this cannot be changed, while others believe actions can be taken to bring about a change. Discuss both views and give your opinion.

Human activities have definitely caused significant damage to wild nature. Some people believe that a decisive shift to peaceful attitude to nature can change the situation on the planet for the better. Other people do not seem to find the possibility of positive problem-solving and do not change their dangerous behaviour. If everyone valued life and actively participated in communities aimed at respecting nature, most of the damage would be repaired. The 2021 fire and flood map is evidence that protecting wildlife is a matter of human survival. The cause of disasters is not in the population increase, from my point of view, but in the aggressive and disdainful attitude of human towards other living beings. It can be seen, on the one hand, in an irrational use of agricultural lands. On the other hand, people do not always do everything they can to prevent natural disasters in the wild. That has endangered the lives of animals and plants as well as the people themselves. Nevertheless, there are communities of people who show concern for nature. They conduct research, publish information and involve others in projects to restore natural balance. Now it is not enough to build natural parks or prohibit hunting for wild animals, it is necessary to support the talented people expressing an active love for nature. Often the activists communities need government support. In conclusion, active talented people show care by doing good things to nature and humanity, trying to bring harmony into relationship with nature. Communities of such people believing in good can improve the situation on the planet. While corporations are only strengthening their domination at any cost, they can be limited by state. An increase in the number of creative and less selfish people in government could provide a more sober and objective view of the life of flora and fauna. 307 Band 9
