Conservation 101 with Ms. Tracy
Did you ever plant a tree or pick up a piece of litter from the ground? If you said yes, then you are helping to conserve the planet.
Conservation means protecting nature and the environment. When humans conserve, they help to save earth’s natural resources. Natural resources include animals, plants, forest, wildlife, water, soil, and minerals. An example of conservation is turning the lights off when someone leaves a room. The turning off of the light will help to not use a lot of electricity. The following groups of material talk about protecting the planet and conservation.
