Though environmental protection advocates are often disparaged as “tree huggers” and “bunny huggers” and worse, they are right about the importance of preserving and protecting the earth for future generations. The fact is, everybody benefits from certain environmental protection programs that strive to protect the rainforest, other forests, wetlands, the oceans, lakes, rivers, streams, and similar wilderness area from hard, pollution, and decimation by corporate interests. Even so, ever year, more and more people encroach on what was formerly wild land and the domain of wild creatures. As a result, there is more and more problems and tension between neighborhoods and suburbs and the wild animals that still call the area home. Wild animals don’t care about the new houses, the only care about finding fresh food and water. But if animals lose their home and their environment, they will eventually be wiped out. That is one of the things that environmental protection advocates which to prevent.
There’s an entire agency, the Environmental Protection Agency, charged with protect the United States land, water, and air. They are supposed to help prevent dangerous waste, air pollution, water pollution, and other issues. But the EPA is only as powerful as a given presidential administration allows it to be, and if an administration is not concerned with environmental protection, then problems will pass by unnoticed and new problems will be introduced. This needs to be a concern for everybody, because humans can’t live without clean air and water either. That is why the advocates are so concerned.
Enviromental Impact Report
The environmental impact report is required for all major development.
As neither entirely aquatic or entirely terrestrial, wetlands are very unique ecosystems.
