Some people say that the main environmental problem of our time is the loss of particular species of plants and animals. Others say that there are more important environmental problems. Discuss both views and give your own opinion. (write at least 250 words)


It is true that the disappearance of certain forms of flora and fauna are always of great concern to everyone. Although this has negative impacts on environment, I would argue that there are more ongoing threats to the environment.

The deterioration of ecosystem draws people's attention for several reasons. In the past, the extinction of some species, the dinosaur, for example, has marked the collapse of ecosystem and the missing evidence of an era. Nowadays, many species of plants and animals are becoming rarer and are on the verge of extinction without timely solutions. Therefore, people are afraid of the world being a poorer place where wildlife and habitats are not protected.

On the other hand, I believe that many noteworthy environmental issues are still outstanding. As can be seen in daily life, people have to deal with simultaneous problems such as: air pollution, noise pollution, water pollution, and so on. These kinds of pollution happen all over the world while the collapse in some species of flora and fauna just exists in remote areas that the majority of people hardly come and know about. Take forests or deserts as examples, most rare species live here and only a group of conservationists cam access these areas safely to tackle the problem. Hence, human beings should take priority over limiting negative effects from other environmental problems.

In conclusion, I approve that the loss of several species can lead to adverse consequences, but other current problems should be taken into consideration instead of just focusing on the first one.
