Conservation of natural resources. Natural resources are substances that exist naturally in the earth and were not made by human beings. Resources occurring in nature that can be used to create wealth. Examples include oil, coal, water, and land. Natural resources.

Natural resources are substances that exist naturally in the earth and were not made by human beings. Resources occurring in nature that can be used to create wealth. Examples include oil, coal, water, and land. Natural resources
Land Resources Water Resources Energy Resources Mineral Resources Forest Resources Types of Natural Resources
Area of earth surface encompassing all attributes of the biosphere. Production of food fuel and other biotic material for human use. Regulation of storage and flow of surface water and ground water Store house of minerals and raw materials A buffer filter for chemical pollutant Enabling movements of animals plants and people between one area to another Land resources
Prevent land from pollution • The disposal of hazardous radioactive waste into the soil must be prohibited • The use of chemical fertilizer and pesticides should be minimized as far as possible. • By reusing and recycling of solid waste such as paper, metal parts, plastics, glass articles, etc. • Soil erosion should be prevented. Conservation of Land resources
All living things depend absolutely on water. We live in a world 3/4th of which is occupied with water. Industries use water for cooling, heating and other purposes. It provide habitat for flora and fauna. Electricity can be generated using hydel power. There are two types of water salt water and fresh water; only fresh water is used for drinking purposes. Water is basic input required for agriculture. Water resources and its importance
The most important source of water on earth is rainfall. • The two basic forms available for water are-surface water and ground water. • Effects of overutilization are- • Reduced surface water flow. • degradation of water quality • increased salt content • increased power cost Sources of water and effects of overutilization
We can prevent fresh water by making reservoir dams, lakes, etc. Prevent water pollution Proper waste disposal system should be put in place to prevent contamination of water bodies. Conservation
Non-renewable • Cannot be replenished or renewable • Fossil fuels • Nuclear energy • Renewable • Can be replenished or renewed • Geothermal • Hydropower • Ocean energy • Solar energy • Wind energy • Biomass energy Energy Resources
It refers to the element chemical compound rocks, etc. which are extracted from earth crust. • The mineral resources are of different natures depending upon their uses, these types are as follows: • Metallic minerals(minerals associated with their ores eg-magnetite, bauxite, iron-steal, Al, Cu, Pb, Zn) • Non-metallic minerals(moulded after mining and given different shapes ex- mica, silica, rocks, gypsum) • Fuel minerals(utilized as fuel eg- coal, petroleum, natural gas, etc.) Mineral Resources
Conservation of land resources itself prevent mineral resources as minerals are extracted from soil. Conservation
Provides clean water Provide home to unique plants and animals Source of economic growth Provide clean air Provide re-creational opportunity Provide aesthetic environment Prevent soil erosion and land slides Forest resources:-
Loss of forest product Loss of natural habitat for wild animals Change in water cycle n reduced rainfall Change in climatic conditions Loss of revenue. Prevention:- • Mining activities should be prohibited in areas declared as protected forests. • Cutting of trees should be followed by massive plantation. • The environmental laws and legal provisions should be strictly enforced. Effects of deforestation
Insulate your home • Make fuel efficiency a high priority when buying a car. Join a carpool or use the bus. Walk or ride a bicycle when possible. • Grow your own food and/or buy locally produced food. Eat organic and fewer processed foods. • Recycle. Separate wastes. Composite yard and food wastes. Use recycled products, especially paper. • Reduce or eliminate your use of “disposable” products. Buy quality and then make things last with regular maintenance. Conservation
“There are many ways a person can conserve their natural resources. All you have to do is look around and see what natural resources you use, and find out ways to limit their usage.” Presented by Shubhra Singh RahulPratap Singh Chauhan
