The forest fires causes many ecological damages. Climate change and drought are the main results. But why our forests are burning?
Forest Fire is the partial or total combustion of the forests caused by natural or humanitarian reasons. The burning of forests causes many ecological damages.
Forest fires are a great danger, especially in summer when it does not rain for long periods. Some parts of Australia, Africa, France and the United States are the places where forest fires are high. Then a wind blows, the leaves flare and if not immediately seen and extinguished the fire grows out of control. If a fire can be detected before it starts to spread, it can easily be extinguished.
In order to protect forests against fires, the following must be observed:
- Don’t throw glasses or glass shards into forests. The glass draws sunlight into the grass like a magnifying glass.
- We should not pour the barbecue ashes without cooling. Because the grass can ignite.
- Throw out cigarettes and throw them in the trash.
- When we see a fire, we should report it to the fire line.
- The public should be aware of forest fires.
Some of the causes of forest fires are:
- Lighting a fire in the jungle without any security measures.
- Leaving the fire without extinguishing.
- Strolling through the woods with fire for night illumination.
- Leaving glass and shards in the woods.
- Doing something with fire in the forest for entertainment or demonstration, burning fire.
What we are doing to the forests of the world is but a mirror reflection of what we are doing to ourselves and to one another…Mahatma Gandhi
