Las areas naturales son quiza lo ultimo que queda del legado de la naturaleza, conservar y presevar estas zonas es compromiso de todos, para salvaguardar los procesos ecosistemicos a traves del tiempo
Un espacio natural es ante todo una fuente de vida, presente y futura. Cuando este sufre un impacto ambiental los seres que allí viven sufren las consecuencias.
¿hasta cuando se podrán preservar estas áreas silvestres o áreas naturales? se conoce que actualmente en ciertas partes del mundo existen leyes que no permiten la intervención humana a estas áreas ya que cada vez se deforesta mas y hay menos espacio para que la naturaleza pueda prosperar sin que el humano tenga que dañar todo esto. hay muchas industrias que han estado interesados en intervenir estas áreas con fines turísticos y científicos pero eso casi siempre va con una doble finalidad, por eso no se permite tocar estas zonas al hombre.
Biological resources provide humans with food and medicines.
Do biological resources include agricultural crops?
Why is it important to conserve biological resources?
Natural areas, or wilderness areas, comprise ecosystems in which human activity has not significantly affected the plant and animal populations or their environment. Natural processes predominate.
In the US according to the \"Wilderness Act of 1964\", wilderness areas are defined as being those areas where the nearest road is at least five miles away and where no permanent buildings stand.
More than 100 million acres of land are now preserved as wilderness in the US under the \"Wilderness Act of 1964\".
Sparsely populated Alaska contains the largest chunk of wilderness areas, at over 50% of the total area. Although wilderness areas are scattered among most of the lower 48 states, the largest percentage is found in the western states. Few undesignated areas in the contiguous states remain that would qualify as wilderness.
California contains significant wilderness areas, with over 4 million acres of National Forest Wilderness areas, and 1.5 million acres of mostly desert wilderness in the Mojave Desert National Preserve. Because of the large population of the state, the demand for recreational use of these areas is very high. Heavy demand for the use of a relatively few natural areas is a problem throughout the contiguous states.
It is not an easy task for natural resource managers to manage these natural areas in a way that conserves biological diversity and ecosystem integrity, while supporting a sustainable and balanced level of human use.
It is important to preserve natural areas for several reasons. For example, some people, especially Native Americans, feel a cultural connection to the wilderness through their ancestors that once lived there.
Wilderness areas are also of economic importance.
Outdoor recreation activities such as hiking and camping benefit tourist industries and manufacturers of outdoor clothes and equipment.
Most importantly, the ecological importance of natural areas is worth preserving. Wilderness areas help maintain ecosystem diversity. They protect watersheds, help to improve air quality and provide a natural undisturbed laboratory for scientific study.
