We should conserve forest and wildlife because of the following reasons:
(i)They help in maintaining the ecological balance because they play an important role in the food chain.
(ii)They provide us with useful things like rubber, wood, honey, fruits, seeds, leaves of bidi etc and also they provide different species of plants and animals for medicinal use.
(iii)They purify the air, control flood and prevent soil erosion and maintain its fertility.
(iv)Forests conserve biodiversity and hereditary resources hence creating an Ecological stability. Damage in diversity can disturb the Ecological stability.
