Do the world's wilderness areas need to be better protected?



 Some people may say that the world's wilderness areas do not need to be better protected but I believe that those areas should be better protected for the following three reasons.
 The first reason is that biodiversity is a very important thing to keep the balance of nature and should be conserved. If it is gone, the food chain will break down and consequently, the balance of nature will be deteriorated. Therefore we need to keep biodiversity.
 The second reason is that it can be expected that further population growth will have a devastating effect on the world's wilderness areas. For example, if people start to live in those wilderness areas, those areas will be disturbed. Hence we should try to protect those areas as much as possible before people disturb them.
 The final reason is that wilderness areas will be disturbed as economic development is going on. People continue to develop economy and economic development often entails the increase in the number of factories or office buildings in those areas. Those things will have a bad impact on those areas.
 As I mentioned, for the aforesaid three reasons, I believe that those areas should be better protected.
