4.3 Benefits and risk of ecotourism to environment Environment of natural parks can be affected by the actions of the people. For instance, when they visited national park, they will bring with them packed foods and beverages in to the a park. Visitors will simply throw rubbishes everywhere and it will cause the pollution of the environment. The more visitors come and the more beverages they bought, it will worsen the environment. This will affect the income of the national park if there were no actions taken into considerations to clean the polluted environment.
However, the value of Indigenous Peoples does not only comes from their worship and protection to Earth’s natural resources, but most importantly, from their knowledge, practices, and traditions in relation to mother nature. An article written by the international Institute of Environment and Development (IIED) and partners shows that Indigenous Peoples have traditionally conserve a
The conference gave attention on the importance of developing environmental knowledge at all levels regardless local or global concern as well as basic environmental education either in formal school system or informal learning background. The environmental education has been formally defined as “A process aimed at developing a world population that is aware of and concerned about the total environment and its associated problems, and which has knowledge, attitudes, motivations, commitments and skills to work individually and collectively towards solutions of current problems and the prevention of new ones” (UNESCO, 1977). Consequently, it signifies the serious importance of environmental knowledge in the early years and the increasing importance of environmental knowledge and awareness considering current worsen environmental condition (Lateh & Muniandy,
Environmental ethics is an ethics that studies the relationships between human beings and the environment. Humans is a part of society as well as other creatures, which includes plants and animals. These are an important part of the world so I think we as a human being need to respect and use morals when dealing with these things. From my opinion, the environmental ethic is very important to help us conserve our world and manage our natural resources to meet our increasing needs and wants. But I found out myself had a very limited understanding of environmental ethics.
Furthermore, the government can spend money on helping poor people who need food and somewhere to live rather than on animals and plants. However, not everybody agrees with this point of view. Animals and plants are living creature like humans and people should protect them no matter what. If animals and plants are endangered people should spend money to help them, after all they are useful to us and people should have conscience that blame them if they let these species die without even try to help them. Government should stimulate the people to protect endangered
This principle involve not just productive agriculture, but also reducing our energy use and pollution. We should support the development of efficient and sustainable agriculture, but we must bear in mind that it is only part of a border solution. Sustainability of agriculture can be defined as the appropriate use of crop and livestock systems and encourage activities which maintain social viability, economic and at the same time preserve the land quality and productivity. While the technology can provide more food sources, it should not be detrimental to the human health or to change the traditional behavioural system. Criticism is against technology in general, and consideration needs to be balance.
Additionally, recycling struggles with climate change and recycling protects animals’ habitats. To illustrate when people need more paper, they’ll destroy more woodlands. Thereby, people should attempt to reuse wasted goods and recycle them to decrease the amount of used raw materials because recycling reduces our effect on climate change. In spite of the fact that recycling requires some energy, this energy is far less than generating new product from virgin material. As this argument is verified by many studies including recent study done for the government-funded Waste and Resources Action Programmer (WRAP).
The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) states that environmental education is vital in imparting an inherent respect for nature amongst society and in enhancing public environmental awareness. UNESCO emphasises the role of environmental education in safeguarding future global developments of societal quality of life, through the protection of the environment, eradication of poverty, minimization of inequalities and insurance of sustainable
We as members of a society must take it as a social responsibility to create a healthy peaceful world for ourselves and our future generations. We must strive for a viable future visible in the present- a life that is not only ecologically sound but vastly more fulfilling than industrial life. Our present way of life is marked by a lack of sensitivity and led by a profit motive. We need people to work for the future environment with compassion and create an environment ready to accommodate the smallest insect to the largest creature in harmony with human beings. We have the power to reserve the damage we have done to the environment.
