Thousands of years ago, Britain was covered by thick forests, home to many animals which no longer live in the United Kingdom. There were wolves and bears, many different kinds of deer and large wild cows. There were less than four million people. They lived in small villages protected by wooden walls from the animals outside.
All this has changed, of course. Now the population of the United Kingdom has increased to sixtyfive million. Threequarters of Britain is covered with fields, towns or cities. Although 25 percent of land is countryside, new methods of farming mean that there are fewer birds and small animals living in fields than ever before. The United Kingdom is one of the few countries in the world that does not have a large wild animal that eats meat. In Scotland there are only 400 wildcats, but these are much smaller than wolves.
Some people would like to change things, however! Some organizations and writers say that Britain needs to become more natural again. They suggest that trees and plants that grew in the UK before towns and cities were built should be allowed to grow again. They even say that large wild animals which have not lived in the UK should be helped to return and live wild. They call this “rewilding”.
Not everyone agrees. In the last twenty years, over one million trees which at first grew in Scotland have been planted and there are plans for more—but wild animals? Some__people__ask__if__wolves__will__attack__sheep__or__even__humans. They are also angry that rewilding might mean an end to walking in the hills which so many people enjoy. So far there are no wolves or bears in Britain's forests—but soon there might be!

3.简略回答问题Who think that Britian needs to become more natural again?
It's incredible to think that people haven't even been using the Internet for 30 years. When the Internet was first used, you had to connect through a telephone line and it could be very slow.Things have changed a lot since then. Today nearly four billion people have a mobile gadget(小器具), such as a smartphone, a tablet, or both. And with WiFi in many public spaces, it's easier than ever to connect.
Many agree that mobile gadgets and the apps on them are useful. They make our lives so much easier. We can do things like searching for a word in the dictionary or using a flashlight with just the swipe of a finger! At any time and place, we can send and receive emails, play games, or look up information. We can also share photos and videos or chat with friends and family using mobile technology. Smartphones have made it possible to send texts. By 2015, people were sending eight trillion texts per year. It's now the most popular way to communicate.
Because it's so useful, people spend a lot of time on the Internet. Probably too much time! In fact, the average person is online for almost four and a half hours each day. We connect to the Internet with a smartphone more than any other device. Some people worry that we spend too much time with our gadgets. What about you? Do you spend too much time on the Internet?
