Even though our population is increasing and land is needed for housing and development. Iwould hope that our country could save the land in its natural state for future generations toenjoy. This land would be good for promoting tourism, for preserving the environment, and forremembering our history.
Although tourism has many negative side effects, it is an industry that can create enormousrevenues. Tourism of course needs something to see. They would not come to our country tosee rows of apartment buildings or new industrial parks. What is interesting for tourists is thepristine countryside that our country is known for.
Preserving the land as it is, would be good for the environment. More factories and otherindustries would further pollute our rivers and air. We need frees and wide open spaces to makeus feel like humans, not machines.
Untouched land reminds us of our history. When we walk through the countryside, we canimagine our ancestors on the same path. If we cover the earth with asphalt and concrete, wewill loose touch with our past. We will forget our roots. Preserving the land is good not only forthe economy and environment, it is good for us as citizens of our soil. We must preservewhat little we have left. Can we afford not to?
