One of the best things about nature is that the more we take good care of it, the more and more it rewards us. This is because nature has been naturally designed to give back as good as it gets. This is why it’s always very important to foster a culture of caring for nature as the rewards to us can be amazing.
We are therefore going to look at three of the most important reasons why we should conserve our natural habitats.
Conservation assures us of a better quality of life
Different people will of course use different yardsticks to determine what qualifies as good quality of life. For us environmentalists, the ability to breathe clean and fresh air, access clean drinking water, have a serene environment where one can spend the day just taking in the amazing atmosphere, and so on, are what we consider as good quality of life and you can get this in spades through conservation.
Conservation promotes local economies
Tourism is a multibillion dollar industry globally with many tourists starting to develop a very keen interest in ecotourism. More and more people are looking to visit places with natural habitats because these are becoming more and more rare sites due to urbanization. The more tourists visit an area, the more they spend therefore the more the local economy is lifted.
Conservation promotes the survival of man and other natural species
As we mentioned earlier, nature will always reward those who take good care of it because it has been structured to do so. All the food we get, clean water, fresh air, good weather and other natural resources are all the fruits of nature. Man and other species continual survival therefore will directly depend on how well we take care of nature.
With these benefits in mind, it should now be obvious why it’s very critical for each one of us to play an active role in caring for our natural habitats at the Cayman Islands.
