The most catastrophic impact on the climate, communities, and wildlife is caused by the effects of excessive tourism. The explosive growth of the tourism industry every year is adding enormously to the escalating carbon emissions and this has led to a wake-up call for responsible/sustainable tourism. The halt in travel due to the pandemic did give a pocket of relief to many “tourist” places, allowing ecosystems to partially recover, but the truth is travel can never cease altogether. 

So should you cut back on your yearly holidays? Ofcourse not. Tourism provides countless benefits to communities around the world and the traveller too, so rather than not travelling at all, you should plan your trips carefully so that you’re able to enjoy the experience you seek, while leaving a positive footprint in the destination you’re visiting.
