Nature Questions and Answers (Q&A)

This is actually a good question as nobody talks and thinks about such a serious topic. As we know, resources are limited, and they will exhaust themselves in the future if we don’t utilize them in a proper way.

Basically, the main motto of sustainable development is to meet the basic need of today’s human beings without compromising the needs of our future generations. It simply means that we should conserve our resources and use them in such a manner so that our future generation could also take benefit from them. It protects our world’s resources whereas it’s true goal is to control the resources.

Sustainable development is important today because within 20 years the population of the Earth will start pressurizing resources to a great extent. The shortage of resources will result in a lot of problems hence, sustainable development is extremely important to manage the growing needs of the human population.

There are many examples of nature conservation and they range from protecting endangered species to reforestation projects in the Amazon and other areas of the world’s forests on every continent (except Antarctica). Instead of directly answering this question, I would like to highlight the top ten nature conservation organizations. To qualify for inclusion on this list an organization must spend “at least 80 percent of money they raise on actual field work, rather than administration and fundraising”.

It’s so nice to know that contributions from people like you and me are going to good conservation causes. The top ten include: The Nature Conservancy, The World Wildlife Fund, The Natural Resources Defense Council, The Sierra Club, The Wildlife Conservation Society, Oceana, Conservation International, The National Audubon Society, Jane Goodall Institute, and The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds.

Deforestation is a big problem in Brazil, specifically. The reason deforestation goes up year by year is because the Amazon rainforest is huge. There’s a lot there to cut down. However, because the government of Brazil is more interested in keeping the economy going, there’s little incentive for them to play by the conservation rules. As the previous answer has already stated, the currency in Brazil is rather weak right now. It takes more than a few months to get the economy in shape again.

With so much effort going into conservation, it doesn’t make sense for one country to be wrecking it so much. However, until Brazil has a reason to care about the environment, it’s a safe bet that deforestation will continue in the Amazon rainforest.

In-situ conservation is the opposite of ex-situ conservation. With in-situ conservation, the animals, plants, etc. stay in their natural habitat and are conserved there. National parks and other areas of that nature are a good example of in-situ conservation in action. However, this can have a host of issues.

Since in-situ conservation requires natural habitat, there is a lot of land involved in this. It does keep them away from some predators and keeps the ecological chains intact, but it can also lead to other issues. Diseases and natural disasters are still major threats to animals and plants with in-situ conservation. Inbreeding can be more rampant in in-situ conservation since the population is often kept a bit separated from the rest of the population that is not being conserved in that land.

Major challenges to the recycling industry are varied and many. As the previous answer indicates, one such challenge is figuring out how to use recycled materials in the new items. Paper is a little easier to do this with because most often, recycled paper is turned into more paper. However, sourcing recycled aluminum for new cans or recycled plastic for new things can be harder, and these materials often only have a few chances because not everyone recycles.

Another major challenge that the recycling industry faces, specifically in the United States, is that not everyone has access to reliable recycling pickup. Some cities offer it free with their trash pick up, giving residents an incentive to recycle. Other cities charge for recycling pick up or don’t offer it at all.

Let's see how far my knowledge stretches

A lot of arguments have been raised concerning whether the words ''nature and nurture'' are the same. Some have been able to prove the similarities between the two words, while many still think there are a lot of differences between nature and nurture than their similarities. But according to my research, I can categorically say, they are different from each other, although they really do have some similarities. Nature by its simple definition, is the innate characteristics of a thing.


This talks about a set of abilities that are wired in human beings. These innate characteristics can be inherited by children from their parents and it can be transferred from one generation to another. That's why your daddy has some skills which can be effortlessly seen in you. Nurture, on the other hand, is a kind of environmental influence that contribute to the development of an individual, or the development of something in an individual. You develop new skills that are not inherited, through nurturing.

Between you and me, you are probably more jealous. I rarely get jealous of anything. I like to please people but that is so there is no conflict. It is not because I am jealous. Instead of being jealous, people should really think about themselves. Most likely, the thing that someone is jealous over doesn’t even pertain to themselves. Therefore, they are being jealous for nothing.

They should realize all of the good things that have happened in their lives and refrain from thinking about what others have. If you can’t stop thinking about what someone else has and you want it, then you should try to achieve what that person has achieved. Even if you don’t get as far as the other person, you will feel good about what you have accomplished.

The first time this concept is given a name is the 1987 report “Our Common Future” by the Brundtland Commission. Sustainable development is the idea that what we develop today won’t impact future generations negatively. Future generations are entitled to their share of the resources, even if they aren’t here yet.
This concept was then introduced in the 1992 United Nations conference on environment and development.

That’s when it became a worldwide initiative, slowly taking hold across the world. Since its introduction, it has become a goal of many countries. However, it’s harder to achieve than it sounds. We build, travel, interact, and demolish a lot. To do all of that sustainably every time is the toughest part of our society.

In many ways, yes, bureaucracy is the greatest challenge facing environmental conservation. When governments get involved, the big companies that rely on these unstable practices will get involved to stop the environmental protections from going into effect. When that happens, the environmental conservationists have to fight harder, and nothing gets done. In this way, bureaucracy does stop environmental conservation.

However, bureaucracy does give us all an inside edge: it gives everyone what they want. The goal of conservation is to be able to use the land now while leaving it for our children to use as well. By having the government get involved, the environmentalists can rest a little easier, knowing they were able to help for the environment and give the businesses what they wanted.

There’s really no better way to conserve animals, plants, etc. because the end goal of conservation is to keep populations healthy and going. Both have their advantages and disadvantages.

For example, as the previous answer points out, in-situ conservation keeps animals and plants in their natural habitat, but ex-situ conservation takes them out of their natural habitats. This difference can breed animals to survive in the new habitat instead of completely conserving the original species, but it would take many, many generations for that to happen.

However, in-situ conservation is probably the more preferred method by conservation experts. It keeps everything in the natural habitat it was born in, and it keeps habitats from completely changing because animals have moved around and new food chains were established.
