Human action can lead to an imbalance in our environment.
My name is Dohee, I am 11 years old and my Issue is Poaching
Why did I select my inquiry?

During my research I found out Elephants tusk can make something very interesting that we also have not known such as piano keys & jewellery.
Many wildlife animals help maintain the food chain and food web balance in the wild, meaning that if they are removed, the ecosystem is disturbed and this might lead to the death of even more animals and plant species because of the explosive growth of other species.
It directly affects the natural environment in that it throws off nature and increases the wildlife.
Here are some of the resources I created to help spread awareness about my inquiry
