World’s Protected Land – level 1

10-06-2019 07:00

Scientists do a study. They watch how much protected land there is. There is less and less protected land. From 1961 to 2019, there are 1.3 million square miles less of protected land. This is mostly because of industry.

In the USA, there is less and less protected land, too.

Difficult words: study noun (a science ‘project’ which gets information about something), protected land (for example, land which is only for animals and people cannot build there), industry (a big business, especially the type which is bad for animals and plants because it is very dirty).
