Speech on Natural Resources for Students in English

Natural resources are resources provided to us by nature. Natural resources include things like sunlight, air, water, and minerals.  Natural resources must be conserved so that they can be used for a longer period. The importance of conserving natural resources has been repeatedly emphasised. If we continue to deplete natural resources at this rate, the environment will become unbalanced. 

Here we have provided a long speech on the conservation of natural resources along with a short water conservation speech for students of Class 1 to 12.

Long and Short Speech on Natural Resources

Long Speech on Conservation of Natural Resources

Today, I am here to deliver a speech on natural resources. Natural resources come in a variety of forms, but they are primarily classified as renewable or non-renewable. Sunlight, water, wind, wood, and soil are examples of renewable natural resources. While some of these natural resources are abundant in nature and can be replenished quickly, others take time to renew.

Examples of non-renewable natural resources include coal, oil, and natural gas. Although these natural resources are abundant in the environment, they cannot be replenished and take hundreds of years to recycle.

The presence of natural resources is critical for the preservation of the environment's balance. However, we do not hesitate to employ them. Our natural resources are being depleted at an alarming rate as we exploit them. We must recognise the value of natural resources and the need to preserve them for future use. We must be especially cautious when using nonrenewable resources and renewable resources that take time to replenish. These are our fundamental requirements. They are critical to our survival. If we do not take serious conservation measures, it will become nearly impossible for us to live on Earth.

Natural resources such as forests, water, soil, food, mineral, and energy resources all play an important role in a country's development. While national and international conservation efforts are underway, individual efforts to conserve natural resources can go a long way.

On an Individual Level, We Can Conserve Energy by Doing the Following - 

  • When not in use, turn off lights, fans, and other appliances.

  • Obtain as much heat from natural sources as possible. If it's a sunny day, hang the clothes to dry instead of using the dryer.

  • On sunny days, use a solar cooker to cook your food, which will be more nutritious and save you money on LPG.

  • Grow deciduous trees and climbers in strategic locations outside your home to reduce summer heat and provide a cool breeze and shade. This will eliminate the need for you to pay for electricity for coolers and air conditioners.

  • Instead of driving or scootering, try riding your bike or walking short distances.

Similarly, We Can Take Certain Steps to Protect the Soil Like -

  • Don't uproot the trees as far as possible while building your house. 

  • Plant a fast-growing native ground cover in disturbed areas.

  • Compost your kitchen waste and use it to fertilize your garden or flower pots. Irrigate the plants with a gentle flow of water to avoid washing away the soil.

  • If you own agricultural land, avoid over-irrigating it without proper drainage to avoid waterlogging and salinisation.

  • Use mixed cropping to avoid depletion of specific soil nutrients.

Last but not least we can promote sustainable agriculture.

Short Water Conservation Speech

Today, I am here to deliver a short water conservation speech. This is the most basic requirement of all (people, creatures, flying creatures, plants, and other miniaturised scale life forms). Water is a one-of-a-kind source of life; we can't imagine living here without it.

Water conservation entails preventing water waste and contamination. Water conservation is a fundamental requirement because water is not always available, so saving water is critical to meeting water shortages. The Earth's water supply is estimated to be 350 million cubic miles. The ocean surrounds 97% of it.

We can't imagine life on Earth without water, so we should recognise its importance. We are destroying it as if it were nothing. Water will be as expensive as gold in the not-too-distant future.

Several Factors Contribute to Water Waste -

  • When the tap is not in use, it is left open.

  • Spraying water in yards and parks when it is not necessary.

  • Not reusing water: Because most water can be reused, a lot of money can be saved.

  • Pollution of waterways and other bodies of water.

  • The executives will be soaked if they do not plan ahead of time.

  • Groundwater is also lost as a result of deforestation.

As an Individual, We can Conserve Water by following the Below-Mentioned Practices -

  • While brushing, shaving, washing, or bathing, do not leave the water running.

  • Check for water leaks in pipes and toilets and repair them as soon as possible. A small pinhole-sized leak wastes 640 litres of water per month.

  • To improve irrigation efficiency and reduce evaporation, use drip and sprinkling irrigation. Install a small system to collect rainwater and normally wasted used water from sinks, clothes washers, bathtubs, and so on, which can then be used to water plants.

  • Construct a rainwater harvesting system in your home. 

I'd like to conclude my speech by promising that we will all start saving water from now on, and I'd like to ask everyone to help spread this movement throughout the country so that water shortages do not occur in the future.

10 Lines on Natural Resources ASL Speech

  1. Natural resources are resources that exist in their natural state in the environment.

  2. Water, air, sunlight, minerals, vegetation, crops, flora and fauna, and so on are examples of natural resources on Earth.

  3. Natural resources are utilities that we use to gain certain advantages.

  4. Natural resources may also exist in alternative forms, such as metal ores, which must be processed before they can be used.

  5. Biotic resources are those obtained from living organisms.

  6. Abiotic resources are those derived from non-living materials.

  7. Natural resources are being depleted as a result of human interference and activities.

  8. Natural resources, such as water, that can be reused, are examples of renewable resources.

  9. Coal, for example, is a non-renewable resource because it does not generate electricity.

  10. Natural resources must be used wisely because they are limited and will run out if they are squandered.


If we continue to deplete our natural resources at the current rate, we won't have much of them left in the future. It will cause problems for future generations. We must use natural resources with caution so that future generations are not harmed. We must all accept responsibility for preventing the waste of our natural resources. We must contribute to the preservation and conservation of the valuable resources that nature has bestowed upon us.
