The Tundra Needs Your Help
- Tundra means "treeless." It is from the Finnish word Tunturi
- The tundra has about 400 species of plants but only 48 different animals
The tundra is important because it is home to different animals and many plant species. The tundra balances out the temperature throughout the world. Humans affect this biome by causing too much CO2 to go into the atmosphere causing global warming. On the bright side, humans have created laws protecting the environment. Also, humans made oil transporters designed to do as little damage. Humans can establish national and international reserves, we can be more cautious or carbon footprints and avoid plastic products. Humans can also, avoid buying products with tundra plants or animals included in the ingredients.
