JU L Y 25, 1973 Conservation Corner Wildlife, tor e a ts , fetlle top- so il, m inerals, pure a i r , and pure w a te r are m ajor resources im­ portant to m an's welfare. None of these can be taken for granted! Natural resources can be ruined o r destroyed by overhunting, for­ est tire s , wearing away of top- so il, automobile exhaust fumes, and untreated sewage. Man must use natural re­ sources wisely. Soil Conservation ts very Im­ portant to us at this particular tim e. tt takes 500 to 1000 years of weathering to produce one inch of topsoU. Erosion can wear away more topeotl tn a day than can be pro­ duced by weathering tn 1000 year*. People must sta r t to conserve soil. Some conservation me­ thods a re: contour plowing, crop rotation, planting cover crops, planting shelter belt*, fertll Us­ ing the land, and s t r i p cropping. F o rests provide natural beau­ ty, prevent erosion, and furnish food and cover for wUdllfe. F o r­ ests supply many com m ercial products such as lum ber, tur­ pentine, and wood pulp for mak- Sue p*p«r. Lighted c igarettes, b u rningde- b r t s , lightning, and Incendiaries a r e responsible t o r most forest fire*. Forests are protected by de­ stroying diseased trees. Chemi­ cals ar* used to kill harmful insects. Reforestation improvement, selective, tad block cutting a ls o help in forest conservation. Destruction of wildlife has com* about largely through changes in natural surroundings and unwise bunting practice*. Clearing forasta, plowing grass­ lands, burning brush, draining swamps, water pollution, and li­ ve rhonting have roduead tbe num­ bers of plants and animals. Refora* tattoo aids wildlife conservation. Tree* snd shrubs not only provide cover and pro­ tection but also food for wlldlifo, Fish aad gams laws aid wildlife conservation by restricting the number of flsh sad gam# that may be taken. Further, gam* laws usually prevent hunting an animal during lta brooding suauoB. Wud- ltf* refogeu are another means of protecting wildlife. W ater Is required by all plant and animal life. Towns snd c i­ ties must bave vast amounts of drinking water. Bathing, wash­ ing, watering lawns and gardens, sewage disposal, Doainig, swim­ ming, fishing, and generating e- lectrlc power all make demands on water. In spite of these de­ mands, water must be conserved and above a ll non-polluted. Mod­ ern sewage treatm ent plants, the control of oil pollution, the stop­ page of heated w aters from elec­ tric power generating plants could be the answer. Seaw ater, too could be changed to fresh by d is­ tillation. Polluted a i r contributes to r e ­ spiratory Infections, lung can­ c e r , and many allergies. It also harm s plants and reduces crop yields. Carbon monoxide and sulfer dioxide account for 80 p e r ­ cent ot all a i r pollution in the United States. 95 percent of all carbon monoxide com es from mo­ tor vehicles. Photochemical smog results from the action ot sunlight on waste m aterials released from burning fuels. When a m ixture ot air and waste fuel gases are acted upon by aunllgbt, a chemi­ cal change occurs. One ol the products of this chem ical change is osone, which causes Irrita­ tion to the linings of the nose and throat producing the watery eyes and stinging feeling a p e r ­ son may experience when he breathes smog. One method ot reducing air pollution Is the filtration of the unburned p a rticles that result when fuels a r e burned. Another method is to reduce the amount of waste gases through more complete burning at fuels. A willful failure to heed na­ tu r e ’s warning signs will lead to cbaoei Soil must be con­ served, forests protected, stream s and air purified, and wildlife closely guarded.
