Eco Tourism – Think Travel, Think Global
As a traveler, it is your utmost priority to respect the sanctity of the place you visit and respect their rules regarding cleanliness and order. The idea of traveling with a sense of responsibility is called eco tourism.
Here are some tips that will help you in preservation of the environment while you are traveling.
Respect the planet
If you are a spirited traveler who would like to see the picturesque beauty that this planet holds for the people then you must respect it from today. If you continue with your careless ways, there will be a day when all of this beauty will be lost and the meaning of travel will be lost.
Do not take away souvenirs
When you are visiting sites of national or historical importance, do not take away any thing that does not belong to you. For example, it is illegal to take a piece of Great Barrier Reef when you are snorkeling in this UNESCO world heritage site. Don’t think of it just one rock, think of it as a million people thinking the same thing.
Do not disturb the natural habitat
When you are visiting a foreign country or any other place, stick to the designated areas. Do not try to be overzealous and explore the hidden forests and disturb flora and fauna in their natural habitat.
Travel with Eco-conscious tour operators
You must always vow to take help from responsible tour operators who believe in Eco-conscious practices. As a traveler, you should always encourage organizations to follow environmental guidelines when they are managing tours for people.
Protect the world
With globetrotting becoming a thing today, with little sense and awareness you can begin a movement which can be followed by responsible people like you.
