1 Mention countryside, and what do people think of?
2 Usually mountains and hills, valleys and rivers, trees and flowers.
3 They think of walking in beautiful and peaceful environments.
4 Do you that in the west, there are special laws for the countryside.
5 In Britain, they have something called “The countryside Code”.
6 They even have countryside wardens who are sort of policeman of the countryside.
7 This is all to protect the countryside from city dwellers who don’t understand the ecological balance of the world outside the city
8 We should remember that farmers and others rely upon the countryside for their living.
9 If we disturb the ecological balance, those living there find it hard to survive.
10 The balance between flora and fauna, animal and man is crucial to survival.
11 As we destroy or change the countryside, wildlife and vegetation is changed.
12 Just walking in the wrong places can destroy species of wildlife.
13 Leaving rubbish or garbage lying around can kill some animals who try to eat it.
14 Driving too many cars into rural areas can pollute and destroy life there.
15 We should remember that plants are as much living things as humans and animals.
