A controversial way of water conservation is recycling water.With the increase in demands for more water, some places use purified water to drink and use for their everyday necessities (Wikipedia, 2007).Without water conservation, our limited water supply will diminish over time.Water conservation consists of eliminating wasteful practices of water use, such as allowing a faucet to drip, toilets to leak, or taking baths instead of showers.During a hydrological drought, the scarcity of water may lead to potential feuds over what little water is left and restrictions might be put on people’s water usage.

Everything we create is of some value to someone.We have the bright blue sky, fresh, crystal-clear lake water, luscious green vegetation along the mountain slopes, wildflowers, picturesque views – all of which fill us with both relaxation and admiration.By reusing materials in their original form instead of throwing them away or passing those materials onto others, one man’s trash becomes another man’s treasure.The key part of waste reduction is conservation – using natural resources wisely and using less than what you think you “need” can avoid any excess waste.Perhaps they like to breathe fresh air or to swim in clear water because the ecology is not so poor as in the cities.

Thermoregulation is the ability of an organism to keep its body temperature within certain boundaries, even when the surrounding temperature is very different (Wikipedia, 2012).There are four avenues of heat loss: convection, conduction, radiation, and evaporation (Wikipedia, 2012).• Behavioral responses to heat, such as lethargy, resting, lying down with limbs spread out or wallowing in pool of water or mud, decreases heat production and increases heat loss • As the animal body gets cooler, the hypothalamic receptors detect this and diminish the heat loss prevention responses.Frostbite only occurs when water within the cells begins to freeze, this destroys the cell causing damage (Wikipedia, 2012).This is a primary reason why animals st...
