It's Their Future

WE DEPEND ON THE ENVIRONMENT
Humans depend on the environment for the food we eat, the air we breathe, the water we drink, and for the clothes, shelter and other necessities of life. We cannot live without the resources that nature provides.

HOW DO PEOPLE AFFECT THE ENVIRONMENT?
People affect the environment in two primary way: using nature's resources and emitting waste and pollution. When the human population was small, nature could absorb and adapt to our activities. Now that our numbers are much larger, we must take great care to reduce our impact and preserve a healthy environment for future generations.
