By respecting nature and animals, we respect ourselves. We are just another species in a world full of the living, except we should have the capacity to make better decisions regarding our environment. Sadly, the decisions many are making are damaging our ecosystem. The further we harm our natural ecosystem, the more harm we our doing to the human race. Nature not only holds the key to keeping our world in balance ecologically, but it also provides balance to our lives by promoting wellness and cures to our ailments. Responsible travel and responsible living in general cannot be stressed enough!
