Environment is everything that surrounds us. The environment can also be called nature. It is a very big gift from God. As children we need to know the importance of our environment.
The trees, lakes, rivers, swamps, grass, mountains, animals, birds, the soil and many others are examples of things in our environment.
Today many people do not know how to look after the environment. They do things which destroy the beautiful nature around us.
Things like cutting down trees, burning swamps to put gardens, throwing polythene bags in the soil destroy the environment.
Did you know that the environment is a home for many animals and birds? This is where they sleep, eat and look after their young ones.
If we do not protect our environment, these animals will lose their homes. Being a friend of the environment is very simple.
All you have to do is avoid doing those things which destroy the environment. This will make all the animals happy and at the same time you will be looking after your surrounding.
