ABOUT THE TREES

🌳 We usually understand the existence of trees and their benefits in their absence, as is the case with most things… To give the simplest example, if there is no tree on a sunny day, there will be no shade, and we will have to stay outside despite the hot sunlight… Whereas we live in a place with trees. Even if it is left to the magnificent and fascinating view of the trees, it has countless benefits for us humans and animals …

Trees prevent erosion. Since they hold the soil with their roots, they prevent the soil from shifting from where it is located, thus preventing a major natural disaster.

🌳 The shades mentioned above are not only for us to cool off, but also prevent the ultraviolet rays from the sun from passing to us. In this way, they are protected from damaging rays.

🌳 Trees have a great importance in the ecosystem. Just as we get the oxygen we need from trees and other plants, the carbon dioxide we extract from our body is harmful to us, if the carbon dioxide given is not trees and other plants. Trees not only filter carbon dioxide, but also other harmful gases such as nitrogen, ammonia and ozone from some other air-polluting gases.

🌳 While fruit trees are our food source for us humans, fruitless trees are also used to meet some of our needs.

Some of the most well-known tree species are: Cedar, Spruce, Juniper, Cypress, Hornbeam, Maple, Plane, Linden, Scotch Pine, Beech, Larch, Sweetgum, Poplar, Birch, Chestnut, Ash, Oak Tree, Olive Tree, Acacia Tree, Walnut. There are many types of trees and trees. All of these magnificent trees grow in our country.

🌳 Trees are good for our souls. Trees are known to be good for people with attention deficits, people with hyperactivity.

🌳 Being surrounded by trees takes away the tiredness and stress of the person.

🌳 Trees have many benefits not only for humans but also for many animal species. For example, it is home to birds, squirrels, ants and many animals.

🌳 Trees are also effective in saving water. Trees release the water they absorb into the atmosphere, which is important in the natural course of climatic events. Water released into the atmosphere returns to us as rain. In addition, in this cycle, the trees also reduce the drought level of the environment they are in and protect the moisture of the soil.

❄ 🌨 🐧 🌏 🌎 🌍 Sea Birds: Penguins 🌨 🐧

🐧 Penguins are bird species that do not have the ability to fly.

Penguins are creatures that survive in polar climates. But speaking of polar climates, interestingly, penguins are only found at the South Pole.

🐧 They belong to the Penguin family.

🐧 They have a body that can withstand cold temperatures up to -40 degrees, with the oil layer on their skin and their feathers being slippery.

Penguins do not have extremely large bodies, a penguin weighing 40 kg is a well-fed penguin. Although their height varies depending on the region they live in and their diet, they can grow approximately up to 1.5 meters.

🐧 So what do you think they eat in this glacial climate? Since penguins are a creature that has curtain feet and has the ability to swim in the sea, they feed on fish in the sea. In addition, eating krill is one of the penguin’s favorite foods. This is a favorite of not only penguins but also creatures such as seals and blue whales. Therefore, krill are in danger of extinction. This means the extinction of creatures that feed on krill, such as the penguins, blue whales and seals mentioned above. Disruption of this food chain also means gradual deterioration of the ecological balance.

🐧 Although it resembles birds, neither wings nor feathers show that it is structurally unlike birds. Penguins, who cannot fly because they cannot break their wings like birds, can perform these performances much faster in the seas. They have the ability to slide quickly on snow masses not only in the sea but also lying on the ground. Because they walk slowly.

🐧 Penguins have a structure around their eyes to filter sea salt from entering the body.

🐧 Penguins can go hungry for months during their incubation period.

🐧 Penguins are preferred in zoos because they are very cute creatures and have a curious structure for humans. Penguins are also a humanoid creature.

🐧 Another interesting thing about penguins is that male penguins take care of the eggs during the hatching period in penguins. They carefully store the eggs in a greasy layer called a brood pouch between their two feet. In this way, they can only protect from freezing cold in this way.

🐧 Did you know that April 25 is Penguins Day?

🐧 There are approximately 20 penguin species in the world.
