Although there are countries that have more need for land to be developed for housing and industry, my country – Bulgaria, is among these that have more need for land to be left in its natural condition, which is due to the following reasons.
First, Bulgaria is a country, where the past years of industrialization, have a harmfull efect on the nature and especially on the land. Fore example bulgarian biggest chemical plant, which is situated in the south part of the country, damaged a big rich soil area with heavy metals. As a result all plants, which are growned there, will be unusable for feeding for many years, though all dangerous poduction processes have been already closed.
In addition I think, that it is very important to left land in its natural conditions, especially around the big cities. Fore example near the city of Vratca, there is a big cement factory, which regulary polute the air and couse longe’s problems to the sitizens.
Finally, I want to mention that sometimes developing of housing has to be stopped and land to be left in its natural condition in order to prevent infrastructurfe damages or even human death. I remember, some yars ago, developing of housing near beutiful seaside area led to soil creep, which caused not only damage of an important highway, but also human lives.
In conclusion, these three reasons show that my country obviously needs more land to be left in its natural condition, in order to prevent more nature damages and also to provide more healthy invinronment for the population.
