Since ancient times, Planet earth is known to host a multitude of natural resources, scenic beauty, polar ice caps, mountain ranges, hidden terrains and so on. Often Scientists and tourists travel all over the earth to explore hidden natural place, admire their beauty or conduct scientific researches over its ecosystem. This essay will analyse the merits and demerits associated with these explorations before drawing a logical conclusion.
One of the benefits of exploring distant natural ecosystem by scientist and sightseer is to study the local inhabitants, flora and fauna and impact of climatic changes in that region over time. Scientists can perform their research work which can potentially lead to some important discoveries about the evolution of life on earth, climatic behaviour and so on. Analysis of snow caps in Polar Regions, rivers in Arizona, lakes in Himalaya’s and soil in remote forests can help to answer unsolved mysteries. Tourists can enjoy the untouched beauty of that region, relax their souls and enjoy their vacations. For instance, many holidaymakers prefer to choose sites that are not crowded and far away from known places, so that they can enjoy the nature to its full extent and revive their souls.
On the contrary, these explorations often incur huge expenses. People visiting remote places can risk their lives in danger due to unavailability of basic necessities of life like food, water, medicines and so on. Moreover, unknown environmental and climatic changes can have adverse effects on their lives. These explorations might attract more tourists which will destroy its beauty and ecosystem of local in-habitats.
To recapitulate, the aforementioned provides several plausible arguments in favour of both views. However, in my opinion, advantages outweigh the disadvantages as the exploration not only result in important discoveries but it also helps kerb the human desire for adventure and thrill.
