09 Oct Protecting the Wilderness
Humans have made their presence felt in every aspect and field that has shown their progress. But there is a specific field that we have forgotten, as our actions have destroyed its foundation to a large extent. That particular field is the mother nature, and our ignorance has taken matters to another level. The wild or wilderness has a specific definition, and it is too late to be learning such concepts in the wake of burning forests. So, to widen the perspective, here is why you need to be protecting the wilderness.
Nature does not require us; instead, we require nature for our very existence. The various benefits that the wilderness offers is numerous, and we have ignored them since the very moment we stepped on this planet. Wilderness offers us more than just a mere place to go on a hiking adventure, as it restores air and filters our water. Apart from that, it has also been kind enough to provide animals with a place to stay, unless we have already destroyed it. Due to all that, it is high time that we shed this act of ignorance and put on another image.
The Act of Protection
The act of protecting goes beyond words and acts as the rising force that puts a hold on various acts of destruction. The negative impacts of development is an ideal factor that has eliminated trees and given the thought about conservation a rest. By preventing such acts, we are not only saving the wilderness but also the wildlife. Road construction, oil and gas drilling, mining, industrial or developmental activities etc. will be prevented, as they would be required to carry on without harming the environment. This implores the need for better laws that govern our forests and prevents them from facing harsh realities by humans.
Campaigns, Protests and so on
We should not be the ones who sit in a corner, awaiting the moment of truth. Since it is time to rise up and act, here are some ways through which you can do that. Campaigns, projects and awareness moments are the essential things that we require at the moment. Apart from that, our daily life can also be moulded to ensure that our carbon footprint causes less damage than expected. The use of vehicles and other machines need to be controlled, for the sake of mother nature.
Is It Too Late?
We often come across various instances where people tend to believe that we are late, and there is nothing that we can do to protect nature. Well, my friend, you are wrong, cause it is never too late. Our actions have numerous impacts, and we need to take them in the direction of positivity. So, stand up for mother nature.
