Travel has the effect of getting you outside of yourself and there is something especially grand and unexplainable about nature, and how it refreshes your body and soul the closer you get to it. One easy way to get close to nature is through outdoor camping. Fortunately, now even individuals who don’t want to sacrifice certain comforts can do it. The question is, can you be convinced to take on glamping for your next vacation?

Belize As My Eco tourism Destination

His body was made of leaves and stones, and he could change shape and travel around the forest without being noticed and leaving no trace at all.
He was so well blended with the surroundings that nobody could spot him, so he had no friends, cause nobody ever got to meet him.

Her job is extremely demanding and stress-full .

I want to come to your camp to see how it is different from here. Here is Lubaantun in Toledo! I want to explore the jungle with you because you know lots about it.

Keeping Mother Earth alive!

I want to be an ECOKID because I like taking care of the environment. I also like planting trees and taking care of the animals. I think everyone has the ability to take care of our environment. Best of all I like planting because it is very fun to plant. When you plant it is called REFORESTATION and when you cut down trees it is called DEFORESTATION. I learned it at school because I like to learn more and more of science because this subject is just very interesting.

Can a summer make a difference?

Schools may promote environmental education, conservation practices or once a year’s celebration of Earth Day. However, the lack of real life, hands-on exposures to environmental education may lead to a generation of unaware and ill prepared young adults. We might be producing a generation of people that lacks the knowledge of sustainable and responsible living.

For children of any age, wonder is intrinsic to their learning. Nature, wildlife, creatures of the forest – all induce great questions. How are these animals different from us?

It is questions like these that arouse curiosity and provide the basis for a child’s exploration of the universe.
With two kids, aged 12 and aged two-and-a-half, my …

Nature Quest Sweepstakes – Essay#23

I love active holidays and connecting with nature. Living on the west coast, I have climbed Half Dome in California Yosemite Park, hiked through old growth forests on the British Columbia coast and kayaked with dolphins in Baja. But most of my adventures are fairly close to home, given the cost and environmental impacts of flying. I’ve never been to a tropical rainforest. When I first discovered the amazing variety of adventures to experience in Belize I knew I had …
