Dear every human being ever,

Through school, I'm sure many of you have learned about the ecosystem and a good amount at that. Most of you may have even had projects about it! However, you probably haven't tried to fix the problems.

Let me get straight to the point. People are destroying the ecosystem at every moment. From poaching black bears to throwing a plastic bag away, the ecosystem is getting constantly destroyed little by little. Animals once so common like bees are becoming few, and with the other things are dying too. Food like fruit or honey is becoming harder to produce, and predators are dying, but prey are blooming. Some animals are harder to find and there are not enough to support other animals, but there are some that are overcrowding the area, which then lowers the population of the next animal, which increases the population of the next animal, and so on.

There are many things we can do to prevent it, however. One thing we could do is recycling, as that lowers the amount of trash in the oceans, killing fewer animals, and keeping the ecosystem in balance. Another thing we could do is help fund things like natural wildlife preserves, or get people to stop poaching. Since this problem is mostly caused by humans, these two approaches would really help stop, or even make the problem less severe.

It also takes the mindset of people to save the ecosystem. If you think that one person can't make a difference, other people probably do too. And then that means that a lot of people are making a difference, and then the ecosystem will be ruined! It is best to keep your spirits up, recycle when you can, dispose of items properly, and most importantly, remember that one person can make a difference, no matter how small the action is.

All the ecosystem problems could be lessened if we all tried. Even one person could help! The reason I say this is because if you have the mindset that one person doesn't affect anything, then so will many other people, and then it becomes lots of people, not just that one person. If we try our hardest to save our ecosystem, I believe we can do it. And I believe the world can be a better place if we all try.
