      I think that the simplest answer is that we wouldn’t last very long at all!! We rely on natural resources for our food, drink, and pretty much everything else we use in our lives. Without those resources, our planet would probably be a lot more like Mars.

      It’s an important point that your question brings up, that we need to look after our natural resources not just because of the fact they’re pretty, or that other animals use them, but that we also rely on them to survive!
