If a man walks in the woods for love of them half of each day, he is in danger of being regarded as a loafer. But if he spends his days as a speculator, shearing off those woods and making the earth bald before her time, he is deemed an industrious and enterprising citizen. -Henry David Thoreau
The environment is a sum of the living and non living things that occurs naturally on the Earth. Ecosystem includes vegetation, rocks, atmosphere that occurs within the boundaries of natural phenomenon.
71% (362 million square kilometers) of the world is composed of Oceans and the remaining 29% is composed of land. The ecosystem which is primarily composed of plants, animals and other microorganism contribute to the habitat of the environment. The region that is free from contact of any human ecosystem or human intervened ecosystem is called the wilderness limits.
“The most intact, undisturbed wild natural areas left on our planet – those last truly wild places that humans do not control and have not developed with roads, pipelines or other industrial infrastructure.”
-WILD Foundation’s definition of wilderness
The wilderness is deeply valued for its culture, spiritual, moral values of the ecosystem. These are the places of the most purest form of Mother Nature.
