The ozone layer is a region of Earth’s stratosphere containing a high ozone gas concentration. In other words, it is a layer of the Earth’s atmosphere that contains more ozone than the surrounding areas. It is important to protect life from UV radiation from the sun, which could potentially harm humans. However, when ozone is destroyed, it leads to various detrimental effects on humans and other organisms.

As a result of the ozone layer being destroyed, more UV radiation reaches the Earth’s surface, which has been causing global warming and climate change. The lack of ozone in the lower atmosphere could also cause air pollution in populated areas and exacerbate health issues such as skin cancer.
