You could approach this from a perspective of anatomy, intelligence/mental capability, social behavior, technological capability, etc. What do you need this for? A class or just general knowledge?
Generally speaking, the more people talk about "being saved," the further away they actually are from true salvation.

What environment????
We create our environment using our brains and opposable thumbs...

Does it maybe mean a more natural environment like what hunter-gatherers would have had to deal with?

Well I see that humans transformed into more influential beings, they learned how to use their environment for their survival.

Assuming hunter gatherer:
i would start with our tall uprightness, opposable thumbs, gestation period, brain size, heat adaptations-sweat,lack of hair. Just to start you off.

Presently as Astus said we are changing our environments to suit us instead of the other way around.
A wise man once said to me:
"Build a man a fire, and he'll be warm for a day. Set a man on fire, and he'll be warm for the rest of his life."

Most organisms (all organisms?) change their environment - but humans are doing it on a global scale!
