Mostly, we are choosing to visit the nature destination because of its capability to make us feels healthy, being refreshed and because of its peacefulness. And there are so many nature destinations you can choose to visit during your travel.
But, as many of human being are always fail in preserving the better future for nature and environment, then we just can keep on seeing it damaging even though some people and communities or organizations have been helping to stop the damages.
In traveling world itself, there are so many threats that are coming from us, the human, that can make the nature travel destination even worst. And to find out more about those threats, I have prepared some of them that hopefully many will know and realize that we should take the important steps to minimize the threats and all their negative impacts.
#1. Plastic wastes
Many of us are using plastic everyday. I have no idea what if each of us will counting our own plastic usage in a month, could be more than what you have been imagined.
The ugly truth about the plastic wastes is, they are taking up to hundreds of year to be decomposed. It is insane to know that we are even keep on producing the plastic wastes while traveling to the nature destination.
The worst case is, some of us are even throwing away and leaving the plastic wastes at nature.
#2. The high season of traveling
The simple and short way to say this is, the more people are visiting the nature destination, the bigger chance for the environment. More plastic wastes will be produced, more water will be used, and surely more chance to ruin the nature as well.
I am not saying that the travelers who are visiting the nature destination in high season are doing mistake without doing nothing but just paying a visit in the wrong time. But we have to admit that the more people are visiting, the complicated the problems will be.
#3. More buildings to support the tourism
If you think that the accommodations, restaurants, bars, cafes, beach clubs and the more various type of building are the sign of how good and popular the travel destination is, I just want to tell you that everything is still just like the two sides of a coin.
Many travelers may are helped to find the accommodation at the beach, looking for the foods is easier since there are many restaurants, and so on. But, what about the abrasion? Local economy may are increasingly high but then we should pay more than what we have got just to make the quality of environment be the same as before.
The natural beach you have been visited before can’t be the same since there have been many things are changed in the name of the art and aesthetic.
The above 3 threats are just some of what we can do to make the nature destination and the environment as a whole to be damaged and I am sure that there must be more other things that we have been done to reduce the quality of our nature. That’s why we will need to apply the sustainable tourism more than before.
