Exploring Incognito: Lesson 1O1

As the summer months turn into monsoons, Goa's forests, waterfalls, and wildlife come alive with vibrant colors and sounds. It's a time when nature is at its best and people flock to these scenic spots to take in the natural beauty. However, it's also a time when the environment is at its most vulnerable, and it's up to us to ensure that we protect it.

Trekking and hiking through the forests, taking dips in the waterfalls, and spotting wildlife can be exhilarating and therapeutic. But we must ensure that we do so responsibly and sustainably. It's essential to leave these places as we found them, with no trace of human presence.

One of the biggest environmental problems that Goa is facing is littering. Visitors often leave behind plastic bottles, wrappers, and other garbage that pollute the environment and harm wildlife. Not only is this unsightly and unpleasant, but it also poses a serious threat to the environment and the creatures that call it home.

To avoid littering, it's essential to carry a reusable water bottle, snacks in containers, and a bag to carry any waste back with you. It's essential to follow the mantra of 'leave no trace' and pack out everything you bring in. It's also important to dispose of waste in the proper bins and recycling stations.

Another critical aspect of visiting these places is to ensure that we don't disturb the wildlife. Wildlife is an essential part of the ecosystem and plays a vital role in maintaining the balance. When we intrude on their natural habitats, we disturb this balance and cause harm to these animals.

It's essential to maintain a safe distance from the wildlife and avoid feeding them or leaving food behind. Feeding wildlife disrupts their natural feeding habits and can lead to health issues for them. It's also important to refrain from touching or handling any animals, as this can be harmful to them and potentially dangerous for us.

It's also important to avoid using plastic bags or other single-use items and instead opt for reusable and sustainable alternatives. Additionally, it's essential to respect the local flora and fauna and avoid plucking flowers or damaging plants.

In conclusion, as we explore the forests, waterfalls, and wildlife of Goa, it's crucial to do so responsibly and sustainably. It's essential to leave no trace, dispose of waste in the proper bins, avoid disturbing the wildlife, and trek responsibly. By doing so, we can enjoy the beauty of nature without causing any harm to the environment. Let's pledge to be responsible visitors and leave these places as we found them so that future generations can enjoy them as well.
