IELTS Writing Task 1
The animal species are becoming extinct due to human activities on land in the sea. What are the reasons and solutions?
In the 21st century, an increasing number of people inhabiting this planet and their activities have caused biodiversity loss driving the extinction of several animal species. Deforestation and pollution are deemed the main culprits behind this phenomenon. However, governmental interventions could contribute to mitigating the problem.
To begin with, logging and pollution should be ascribed for the vulnerability to the extinction of some species. Due to the overgrowing population in the world, human demands for land and many other natural resources to serve daily and production activities rise accordingly. To fulfill their needs, people usually resort to massive deforestation, which destroys the habitats of animals. Without living space, the disappearance of some wildlife species is inevitable. Another reason worth mentioning is the increasing pollution levels on land and under the sea due to heavy chemical disposal from factories. For instance, last year in [country’s name], the discharge of toxic industrial waste of a steel plant called X caused bass fish and marine creature deaths in the middle part of [country’s name]. Certain creatures die out when living in contaminated water, and the affected ecosystem may require years to recover fully.
Governments should take action to preserve the wildlife. First of all, it is imperative to outlaw deforestation for any purpose. All forest areas should be conserved as national parks, and thus any individual or organization involved in cutting trees down must be punished severely. To mitigate pollution, the government also needs to introduce more stringent regulations on industrial activities. For
example, a factory could be permanently banned if any illegal waste discharge is detected. These two measures would be effective in halting harmful human activities to the environment, wildlife, and marine life.
In conclusion, I believe that people are overlooking the importance of protecting animal species for personal benefits. Although human activities are putting harm to the habitats of animals, the authority could tackle this issue by enacting stricter laws against deforestation and environmental contamination.
