Protecting Nature for Future Generations of Sporting Enthusiasts
1.) Nature provides a place to hike, fish, hunt, snowshoe, run, and hunt. Without he natural outdoors most of these activities will go away. There won't be enough land or habitat to ensure that people can use them appropriately.
2.) People enjoy the outdoors for its mental health benefits that include relaxation and contemplation. Activities like walking and yoga can be conducted in the natural outdoors but will become more difficult without support of a serene environment.
I spend a significant portion of my time hunting, hiking, and enjoying the outdoors. These activities are not possible if we don't protect the environment and ensure that habitat isn't destroyed. I am a supporter of nature and a supporter of business. There is a way to balance them both.
While it make sense to support business and economic development we do need to consider that once the forests and natural land has been depleted it doesn't regenerate without significant effort. Building another house or building is easy but building a forest is extremely difficult once people move in and own the land. Thinking before we act has benefits not only for outdoor enthusiasts but also generations to come.
