Protection of Environment.


Since ancient times Nature has served Man, being the source of his life. For thousands of years people lived in harmony with environment. But with the development of civilization man’s interference with nature began to increase.

Large cities with thousands of smoky industrial enterprises appear all over the world today. They pollute the air we breathe, the water we drink, the land we live in. Vast forests are cut and burnt in fire. As a result some rare species of animals, birds, fish and plants disappear forever, a number of rivers and lakes dry up.

Environmental protection is a universal concern. That is why serious measures to create a system of ecological security should be taken.  An international organization Greenpeace is also doing much to preserve the environment.

The Earth is our home. We must take care of it  for ourselves  and next generations.



Ecological  problems of  the river Sysola.


Many years ago river Sysola was clean, transparent and full of fish. But now, when industry became great, population in Syktyvkar and in the villages around Syktyvkar grew up, Syktyvkar became great and large, river Sysola also became narrow, filthy and muddy, because Timber Industrial Complex and farm “Prigorodniy” are dumping liquid wastes into the river; so they pollute and poison environment in the river and environment became unhealthly, fish cannot survive, many birds and fish die, because of the polluted water. Some beaches are considered dangerous for swimming. Human activities affect the balance of nature.

But some people make laws, which defend our river from dumping liquid wastes and poachers. We must defend our river and we must make it clean. If we want our children to live in the same world we live in, or in a better and healthier world, we must learn to protect the water, the air and the earth from pollution. If we era unable to learn to use the environment carefully and protect damage caused by man’s activities, very soon we’ll have no world to live in.
