Natural resources are resources that exist (on the earth) without the intervention of humans.
These are resources that are found in the environment and developed without human involvement. Natural resources include air, sunlight, water, soil, stone, plants, animals, and fossil fuels, to name a few.
Natural resources are naturally occurring items or supplies extracted from the earth that are beneficial to man or could be beneficial under possible technological, economic, or social circumstances, such as food, building and clothing materials, fertilisers, metals, water, and geothermal power. Natural resources have been the domain of the natural sciences for a long time.
