Descriptive Essay on Mother Nature in English for Kids


Nature is God’s greatest boon to mankind.  Nature is the mother of all creations on our earth.  The air that we breath, the water that we drink, the food that we consume, the furniture that we use, etc. are all gifted by Mother Nature.  If not for nature life on earth would have been unimaginable.

The bright sunshine, the beautiful mountains, the showers of rain, the tamed and wild animals, the gems and the jewels, the paper on which we write all are the presents of Nature.  We as humans owe our very existence to Mother Nature but seem to disregard this inimitable fact and do not pay any respect to her instead we indulge in polluting and destroying our environment.  Today, people uproot & trees for furniture but forget to plant a new sapling in its place.  The tragedy of modern day existence is people are enjoying luxury items such as cars, air-conditioners refrigerators, etc. failing to realize that they are polluting the ecological balance of our earth.  Today’s generation seems to have no moral responsibility towards nature.

The ecologists, scientists and environment activists all over the world have realized the need for protecting nature and its natural resources.  The major problems that our earth is struggling are with pollution, population, depletion of mineral resources, global warming, extinction of various species of animals and cutting down of forests.

Our beautiful earth is turning into a defaced, ugly surface of land.  The rise in population leads to a rise in consumption of natural resources.  There is more demand for fuels like Coal, petroleum, etc., which cause air pollution.  The smoke emitted from exhaust tanks of cars and factory units have contaminated the very air that we breath.  In order to reduce the effect of toxic air pollutants like Carbon monoxide, sulphur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide, etc. we must plant more trees.  People must use fuels like liquid petroleum Gas (L.P.G.) in their vehicles.  The old, polluting buses must be banned from plying on the roads.

The water that we drink has also been polluted by ruthless industries and careless spilling of oil and wastage into the seas by ships.  The Government must that strict action against Companies, which release toxic chemical waste into the seas.  The factories must treat the waste and make it harmless before releasing it into the rivers and lakes.  The incident of the Coca-cola factory at plachimada is an example of how materialistic company used up all the water in a place making the people of the place struggle even to obtain drinking water.  The Government has done nothing to protect the rights of the people of the place.  There is hardly any action taken up against the firm while the people have a terrible time making amends for water.

Another environmental problem is the cutting down of trees.  Here, an example of a great environmental movement can be given of the Chipko Movement in U.P. begun by an eminent environmentalist Sunder Lal Baguguna.

The women of a forest clung on to each tree when their forest was about to be cut down by ruthless industrialists.  Thus this initiative by a few brave women helped to save major disaster.  Forests are the lungs of the world.  They not only give us pure air, but also prevent soil erosion and protect a lot of endangered species.  Thus it is our duty to prevent and preserve our nature from losing its major life force i.e. its plants.

The release of CFC’S (Chlore-Fluro-Carbons) used in refrigerators into the air has lead to the creation of large holes in the ozone layer.  This may lead to the gradual depletion of this protective ozone layer, which prevents the harmful ultra –violet rays of the sun from directly contacting the earth’s surface.  These rays are causing global warming which in turn are making the polar ice melt these rays also cause skin deceases such as skin cancer.  The melting of polarize may create a situation of flash floods in the near future.  It is our duty as responsible people to prevent release of chemicals such as CFC’s from being released freely into air.  The earth is our home and it is our duty to protect it.

We must remembered the three ‘R’s, Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.  If we keep these ‘R’s in mind, we can create a better social environment for our future generations.  5th of July is celebrated as Environment Day.  Environmental Activists such as Medha Patkar, Arundhati Roy and Sunder Lal Bahuguna are inspiring figures of our society, who have inspired thousand of Indians to take up environmental and social issues.

The importance of protecting Mother Nature is very necessary in today’s age.  As nature is the main life force of all living beings on earth.  It is our duty to preserve and protect Nature and all its creations alike.  We must also love her in return as she loves us.  Planting more trees and preventing environmental polluting and protecting all plants and animals should be our basic moral responsibility.  We must stand up for its cause and give Nature its due.
