ACADEMIC IELTS TASK 01 – TABLE:
The char shows the number of cars made in three countries from 2003-2009
The table compares car production in Argentina, Australia and Thailand in three years 2003,2006 and 2009. Overall, while the number of automobiles produced in Argentina increased significantly, that of Australia witnessed a reverse trend, compared to an erratic pattern of Thailand during the period shown. After 6 years,Thailand was still dominant in car industry among the three countries.
In 2003, Argentina manufactured 145,930 cars. This number then surged to 413,062 in 2003 before a rise to 512,247 cars was seen in 2009. The number of cars made in Australia was 430,568 in 2003, tripling the figure of its Argentina counterpart in the same year. However, Australia’s car production experienced a fall of around one hundred thousand in 2006 and continued to decrease to 212,647 after the next 3 years. Undergoing fluctuations, the figure for Thailand in 2003 were highest among the three countries with 784,770 automobiles in the fist surveyed year. Approximately 500,000 additional automobiles were manufactured in 2006. Despite a drop to 950,258 observed in 2009, Thailand retained its leading position as the most productive car producer.
IELTS TASK 02 TOPIC:
The animal species are becoming extinct due to human activities on land in sea. What are the reasons and solutions?
In the 21st century, an increasing number of people inhabiting on this planet along with their activities have caused biodiversity loss driving the extinction of several animal species. Deforestation and pollution are deemed 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 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. In order 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 levels of pollution 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 eco-system may require years to fully recover.
Governments should take actions so as to preserve the wildlife. First of all, it is imperative to outlaw deforestation of any purposes. 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 for personal benefits, people are overlooking the importance of protecting animal species. Although human activities are putting harm to habitats of animals, the authority could tackle this issue by enacting stricter laws against deforestation and environmental contamination.
