Issue 2 Protecting Environmently Senstive Areas
What is the issue about?
Environmentally sensitive areas are places that have special environmental attributes
worthy of retention or special care. These areas are demanding to the maintenance of
productive and diverse plant and wildlife populations. Examples are ecosystems
habitats for species at risk and areas that are easily disturbed by human activities. Some of these environmentally sensitive areas are home to animals which are provincially significant, others are important in a more local background. They range in size and from small patches to extensive landscape features, and can include rare and common habitats, plants and animals.
Where does this issue take place?
This issue takes place in any areas containing natural features or ecological functions of such significance as to their protection in the best long term interest of the people and environment. Environmentally sensitive areas also take place in such places that give to maintaining surface water quality, contain plant or animal species that are rare provincially or nationally, and areas that provide links among two or more close natural systems.
Why is this issue a concern to our community?
Environmentally sensitive areas are a concern to Mississauga because they have a big amount of natural resources that should be protected because there is only less than 10% of environmentally sensitive areas in the world. We need to conserve natural resources because they are the sources of our daily needs. If these resources are abused or harmed, we will have a small quantity of sources for food and living. The protection and improvement of the natural environment includes a lot of fish, wildlife, and bird habitats that is complete through land use planning, development regulations and public education.
Who is involved in this issue?
Anyone from around the world is involved in environmentally sensitive areas but mainly the government because as we can all do something to protect the use of environmentally sensitive areas and their natural resources. A few things we can do to reduce the use of environmentally sensitive areas is to restrict the development in the areas which have effect on environmentally sensitive areas.
Do the view points differ?
This issue could be solved in Mississauga by making people more aware of the problem stopping and reducing the use of environmentally sensitive areas and anything that can cause and harm or damage to the areas. We could do this keeping our environmentally sensitive areas protected. We could have those areas fenced or have signs so it will restrict people from entering.
