How can we protect this Biome?

1. Well since one of the things that we humans do to this Biome is logging ( Cutting down Trees ) we can try to stop logging or at least try to reduce the number of trees we cut down.

2. Littering, even though it can be a habit we can still try to prevent it.

Humans Harm

1. As noticed in the answer above logging seems to be a big problem in the Coniferous Forest. Since trees reduce Carbin Dioxide whenever we cut trees down, it can result in climate change. Also whenever a tree is cut down, animals loose their homes, not all animals can find another home quickly or even at all, which threatens their existence.

2. Again, like I said in the answer above, littering always seems to be a problem in a lot of places, but just because it happens in other places too, doesn't mean it's not important and serious. Even though it can be a habit or harm animals and the environment we do it anyway and we need to stop and help.

5 Sentence Summary

This biome has very cold and long winters so the animals have to adapt to many different things. This biome is actually our main source to needle/pine trees! The Coniferous Forest includes the boreal forest which is under the Tundra. Many animals in this biome are in danger because of logging ( cutting down trees ) because they will lose their home! Although the Coniferous Forest is beautiful it can be harsh.
