Why must use conserve our forests? List any two causes for deforestation taking place.
We must conserve our forests to preserve biodiversity (range of different life forms) so as to avoid the loss of ecological stability. A large number of tribes live in and around forests. If forests are not conserved effectively, then these tribes may lose their habitat. If forests are ndt managed properly, then water resources, quality of soil, and even the amount of rainfall in a particular region may get affected. In simple words, without forests, life will become extremely difficult for human beings.
Industrialization: Industries regularly derive several raw materials from forests. This leads to large scale deforestation.
Urbanization: The increase in urbanization has a direct impact on forests. Since, urbanization requires large open areas, a large number of trees are derooted for this purpose.
