Some disasters are announced with a roar, others in a whisper. for we also know that If a bird changes its movement pattern from vertical (north to south) to horizontal (east to west), it’s mostly because of a bad experience that he faced or due to species extinction or climate change, yet no one comes to their rescue. Invulnerable places like the island of Boracay in the Philippines, there are many valuable warning signs where waste and destruction have led to habitat closure, hardly can animals survive there, and the damage done to the entire ecosystem is not talked about enough. It’s no secret that we are in the midst of a climate emergency, even though it looks normal, and no alarm has been raised,
Questions that trouble my mind the most is there an ethical way to explore a planet and not destroy it?
I know it also troubles you too when you go out and see some tourists feel so disorganized and end up having a bad experience, but I think it’s possible to do so without destroying it, but it takes planning, conscious choice, and respect for the people and places we may visit. Numerous ideas guide me, but I am going to list the two most important ideas that guide me:
There are these quotes that keep me going ” Each traveler must establish his principles”. Some of my colleagues have taken a firm stand. An American friend of mine who is a naturalist has decided to fly around the world for the last decade. For generations, he has gotten a strong root in America, a wonderland accessible by train or (reluctantly) by car. it worked for him. He fulfilled his desire to connect with nature and the people of the country while leaving a smaller carbon footprint.
Most American propose hard and quick delivery are often more complex than the travel considerations I make. Traveling both domestically and internationally allows me to immerse myself in a different story. At the very least, it makes me feel more whole. Very inquisitive, a little daring, and capable of developing delight and empathy. The anti-black veil that surrounds my daily reality in everyday life does not always allow me to be such a person. Because of sundown city and segregation regulations, being able to explore when your parents and grandparents couldn’t is a significant benefit. Honestly, it helps you see things from a different perspective.
Before traveling I make sure I am mentally and physically prepared for the trip, How? I do some self-reflection before booking a trip. I wonder where my interest comes from? Do you want to repeat what you saw on social networks or on TV? Am I interested in the scenery and the people I will be visiting? Have I studied the impact of travel on culture and the environment? Can I go if I can’t bring my camera? What else does this exchange offer besides money? Wanting to see someplace before it disappears, or a race before it disappears – knowing that my actions will hasten their death – I can’t stand this feeling. I must admit that there are places where I will never go. The Rio Platano Biosphere Reserve in Honduras is one of the last parts of Central America’s pristine rainforest. In the Galapagos Islands due to threats from unsustainable visitation, overfishing, and invasive species.
When I travel, I work as a manager for the places I visit. On land, public transport is used. We focus on seasonal products to reduce the burden on imports. I stay away from places that exploit animals I can’t even bear it not to even alter their natural behavior and ability to survive in the wild, and I don’t go to most of my online posts so that other visitors can’t select a particular place. One of the biggest challenges for environmental biologists and climate change activists is the introduction of pathogens or invasive animals into vulnerable habitats for endangered species. In addition to reusable bottles, utensils, and bags, and the “leave no trace” principle, I have one rule that I don’t want to break. Removes pathogens by decontaminating clothing and footwear when entering vulnerable ecosystems. Hal. Come. This usually means finding a washer and dryer where the heat can kill any bacteria or mold on your body.
I do the best I can with the information I possess, one thing is this when I travel anywhere, it’s an opportunity to gain and record new information, learn something new, and know more about certain places, ecosystems, and people, although I don’t get it right 100 percent of the time. I’m always curious, I always want to learn, and unafraid to ask questions which is what has been the secret to the exposure I have gotten. From the questions, I ask them, I intend to know why certain things are done,
One thing I have learned during my experience is that no action is too small to make a difference. Only a few know that travel has the power to transform us, not just us, it changes our mindset and elicits reverence for the natural world. And if we change our mindset and we’re able to see these places we visit as part of our globe as our responsibility to treat them with almost respect and care that might just be enough to save them.
