Thank You for Caring How would you react if someone came and took your home from you? The Lorax movie inspired by Dr. Seuss is a fable about environmental responsibility. It touches on many issues such as habitat destruction due to expanding a corporation at the expense of the earth. Habitat destruction doesn't always revolve around human activity. Natural disasters may cause an excessive amount of damage to a habitat. The only difference about the damage is that the habitat can recover after a natural disaster in contrast to human activity.
