The planet we live on has changed rapidly over the past few years. Some may say this is due to natural processes, and to a certain extent this may be true. But it is a scientifically proven fact that climate change is manmade and is changing the planet in ways we cannot fully understand.
Environmental degradation is taking place everywhere and at alarming rates. Entire forests are being wiped out. The time to travel the world and see nature in all its glory is now. Thankfully, pristine forests such as patches of the amazon rainforest or the Cuc Phuong National Park still exist.
Most countries follow the same model of conservation and have designated areas known as national parks, where wilderness rules. Parts of these parks are open to the public. Obviously, every park has its own points of interest and its own flora and fauna depending on where it is located.
It is important to find out information about the national park before travelling. Some national parks such as the Yellowstone National Park in America are closed during winter months due to heavy snow. Most national parks are closed at some point during the year, whether it is winter or monsoon.
Travelling is said to broaden the mind, but travelling to see and appreciate nature not only broadens the mind, but can be a life changing experience. Seeing the inherent beauty of our planet can perhaps help us understand the degrading impact of our actions better.
