Environment Care.. Why and How People Should Do So
We all need to live in a safe environment. A safe environment necessarily doesn’t mean being in an estate; where there are no muggings. Or break-ins. But that which is environment sensitive. By this I mean a place where there are minimal cases of environmental degradation. Humans need to reduce pollution of the environment. We need to embrace changes; which embrace better use of our natural resources. There is need to develop better guidelines. As well as policies; which tends to promote environmental sustainability. Among all industries; as well as throughout the globe.
On the other hand; if we look at today’s world, a lot of human activity has led to deteriorating environment. We have experienced major devastating climatic effects. This is because of the degrading of the environment. Atmospheric temperatures have been at the highest points of late.
We have been hit by major catastrophic events; which have led to the loss of properties and lives. Whichever are as a result of environmental changes. Today we have major disasters; acid rains, tsunamis, hurricanes, earthquakes etc. Which all result because of poor management of environmental resources. Humans activities have resulted to the majority occurrences of all this. Need to address such problems is very critical given that most humans are unaware of their activities; which could have impacted on the same.
Advocating for a Sustainable Environment
As a journalist and also a blogger; strongly, I believe that I’m mandated in helping address these issues. My first attempt to do so; was received with negatively criticism; that I almost backed away. But after evaluating the benefits of my entire advocacy; I knew that I had a duty to take part in. Then I strategized a way forward in making environmental sustainability come true.
It was some time in 2007, when I was covering a documentary about marine biology within the coast of my country. Upon much of the finding about marine life; was the case of majority of marine life. That was being threatened by changes in marine landscapes. However, the marine environment had been greatly tampered with. Due to human interference. Some was on the road to extinction. The project which was supposed to take a maximum of 5 weeks too an extra 11. We tried to document the extensive nature of the endangered species. As well as their courses.
Nonetheless, I’m glad that most organizations; which promote marine survival. As well as the study their existence worked hand-in-hand with us through the projects. It helped us identify the major areas of concern. We were able to establish the main course. Also, we tried as much as we can to develop the best remedies of the situation.
Taking Action against Degradation of Mother Nature
That is when I decided to start the advocacy of the same. However, I met a lot of resistance as I tried to convince the necessary institutions to take actions against companies. They were in fact contributing to the pollution of marine environment. Not much action was taken as the studies. Almost the whole research was carried out. It was found to be inconsequential.
Anyhow, I was branded a fool; a fake journalist who was trying to gain negative popularity. Not much about the whole contributions to the studies. Along with the documentary; were taken serious even though the media company that I was working for. They spent a fortune in the whole program. This was heart-breaking to me.
After this entire incident; I felt as if I was the one who was wrong. I felt that I had taken everything too heavily; when there was no real course for alarm. I could have just given up on my fight against environmental sustainability. It’s not for an incident; which happened several weeks later.
Human Activities need to be Controlled to Protect the Ecosystem
This was a situation which was as a result of by human-wildlife conflict. Apparently, there was a major infrastructural development; which was being built through a wildlife reserve. It must have made the wildlife go hysterical. They started to get loose. Also, they would find their way out of the reserve. Then into the streets. It was clear that the animals were being disturbed by the constructions. They were taking place within the reserve hence their behavioral attitude.
This was confirmed by another foreign body; which took into investigating the behavioral attitude of the wild animals. It was clear that human intervention was bringing a lot of chaos. Something had to be done. Finally, that is when I realized; that I needed to enlighten the general public. About the need for sustainable living.
Be that as it may; I decided to resume my campaign through my popular radio program. It may have taken some time for me to realize same efforts. However, the more I tried; the better I was able to convince the public. This was about the importance of caring for the environment. Including the importance of tree planting. Much has changed. Though there is a lot which needs to be done. Therefore, I still continue doing what I feel is best for the environments. With that said, I believe that one day; humans will realize the importance of environmental conservation. And will take better care of it. As well as their society.
