There are many natural resources gifted to us. These gifts are water, air, trees, land and other useful things we find in the environment. Water is an essential thing for the existence of fauna and flora.  Though it is a natural resource sometimes it is limited or not to be found easily. This natural resource helps man in providing them with water for drinking, cooking, washing and for various other purposes.

Also Sri Lanka being an agricultural country knows the value of water. If the water supply for irrigation is interrupted then the farmer will not be able to cultivate their lands. Inland fishing too will be affected by this. In other words while seeing the value of water as a natural resource we should be determined to conserve the water resource. Where there is green there is water everywhere.


Rain Forest

Man is blessed with natural gifts. Rain forests are such a natural resource gifted to man. Water, air, metal, fertile land and oil are some other natural resources man is blessed with. The same way these rain forests too provide man with essential things. Tree like Cactus, Cypress etc., resist the dry weather and keep the humidity favourable to man. And another important thing we should never forget is it the forests that provide man with the largest amount of oxygen. Therefore rain forest is man’s best friend that makes him breathe live and survive.
