Forests are our lifeline because they serve as an important resource for human beings as well as nature. Forests have rivers, streams, and lakes that provide water to the animals and birds, who live there. It also provides wood, fodder, and other raw materials for the industries. Forests prevent soil erosion and bring rain. Also, the forest provides residence for animals and birds.
