How Traveling promotes Conservation

“I have loved her, a little wanderer with a mind full of wild forests and eyes that await adventure.” 

PHOTOGRAPHY

photography can have a huge influence in creating an area of wildlife protection, documenting a ale new range or habitat, and also just educating people about the wildlife and impact they have on their environment. Creating Asethic values in a harmless way is a successful use of photography to initiate wildlife conservation. A photograph can document and send out a message or idea way more effectively than words found in an article. Taking photos that illustrates an animal in its natural habitat help provide a greater understanding to someone without even knowing the message or ecology behind it. If you work on a project, upload everything to document the wildlife in your area, send it to NGOs, local nature reserves, wildlife refuges, newspapers, magazines the options are endless. If you can provide a project, make sure it is put to use. Documenting wildlife in a way that stimulates empathy and emotion is key to conservation.

ECOTOURISM

Ecotourism is traveling with limiting negative impacts on the natural environment, I like to describe it as “traveling like a local” responsible travel to natural areas help to conserve the environment by improving the well being of the local people. By taking part in traveling like a local you get to take part In local nature and experience the culture of the area instead of only seeing the resort life. These enterprises are managed at a local level and small scale, creating many benefits to the local economies. ecotourism can create jobs and involve many more people in the community and brings a much better standard of living by making it possible to habe improved facilities. Another  positive impacts of ecotourism include drinkable water resources and clinics. Creating a better appreciation of the world’s natural resources and experiencing culture through landscapes, wildlife and the vast marine world leads to a desire to protect and conserve the natural environment. Becoming an ecotourist helps with cultural preservation as well as conservation. Having an interaction with the natives and locals leads to a sustained first hand experience. Ecotourism is not only good in regards to environmental science or ecology but it can also educate people on political, social, and economical issues in these countries visited. Ecotourism is slowly making it’s way into our culture as travelers as we find a more sustainable way to gain world knowledge and obtain experience and adventure
