Deforestation and habitat loss is not about losing a few plants and animals, but also the survival of man hangs on it (Butler, 2019). Deforestation aids the mechanism of altering the already endangered planet earth; making it dangerous for plants and animals to survive it. The quest for more lands for agricultural activities and human expansions is further reducing the forested areas on the surface on the earth. Environmental education is the key to reversing continuous and deliberate human action through the protection of every natural forest and afforestation where necessary. Soil microbes play an important role in many critical ecosystem processes, but little is known about the effects of land reclamation. A fundamental shift is taking place worldwide in agricultural practices and food production. In the past, the principal driving force was to
increase the yield potential of food crops and their productivity. Today, the drive for productivity is increasingly combined with the desire and even the demand for sustainability. Sustainable agriculture involves successful management of agricultural resources to satisfy human needs while maintaining environmental quality and conserving natural resources for future. Improvement in agricultural sustainability requires the optimal use and management of soil fertility and its physico-chemical properties. Both rely on soil biological process and soil
biodiversity. This implies management practices that enhance soil biological activity and thereby buildup long term soil productivity and crop health. Such practices are of major concern in marginal lands to avoid degradation and in restoration of degraded lands at regions, where high
external input agriculture is not feasible.

Keywords: agriculture, mining, civilization, environment, human health, waste generation.
