The drawing portrays a tragic scene in which a rabbit is telling a story to her son, with numerous fresh tree stumps surrounding them. It seems that the tree stumps are lamenting the loss of their paradise as well.
The picture aims at assailing a serious environmental problem—deforestation, for which several factors are responsible. In the first place, no one can ignore the fact that wood is an indispensable raw material for industrial production and daily life. In the second place, the expanding human population requires more living space, and forests are always the first choice humans decide to sacrifice. As a result, forests have experienced, and are experiencing fatal destruction worldwide.
Currently, people in increasing numbers come to realize the forests’ fundamental role in sustaining ecological balance, and their damage will result in irreversible harm to the world’s environment. Therefore, urgent and effective measures should be implemented so as to prevent deforestation.

The preservation and restoration of forests is a complex project that calls for more concern from the human society. （203 words）
