🌮 MEXIQUE 🌮 • Holbox • ❣️❣️ Énorme coup de cœur ❣️❣️
Eau turquoise, 🐠sable blanc, coquillages 🐚qui bordent le littoral 🏝et couchers de soleil 🌅grandioses ... cette île est un pur ⭐️petit paradis ⭐️encore préservé du tourisme de masse. Elle prend la place number 🥇des plus belles plages 🏖que nous ayons vu !
Le séjour sera rythmé par de nombreuses averses 🌧.Parfois frustrant d’être ici et de ne pas en profiter pleinement mais finalement cela nous permettra aussi de protéger naturellement nos peaux ☀️du soleil. 😎
Le seul bémol à notre bonheur fut les moustiques 👿 ...tellement virulents 👹que nous évitions les sorties nocturnes.
Mais quoi qu’il en soit, Holbox sera le lieu idéal pour fêter nos 🎈4 mois 🎈de voyage que nous n’oublierons pas.
🌟 Nos 3 kiffs 🌟
1- tester tous les glaciers de l’île pour élire la meilleure glace 🍦
2- enfoncer nos pieds dans le sable tout doux 👣🏝
3- regarder le spectacle du soleil, changer de couleurs jusqu’à ne plus le voir ✨MAGIQUE ✨
This pic is from the other day when we had a very close land-based encounter with a mother and calf Southern Right Whale. The highlights of this interaction were seeing the mother spy hopping and hearing her huge exhale of breath. 🐋🐋
Economic activities are always linked to an interference with nature. Since the 70's we are taking more from Earth than it can reproduce! For our following generations we leave debts, a destroyed environment and extreme inequality!
This is no future!
Our challenge is to create an economy that provides a better future for our children and grandchildren! Let's work together to make it happen! 🌍🌎🌏 ____
Kegiatan ekonomi selalu dikaitkan dengan kerusakan lingkungan. Sejak tahun 70an kita mengambil lebih banyak dari Bumi dapat berikan! Untuk generasi berikutnya, kita meninggalkan hutang, lingkungan yang rusak, dan ketidakadilan yang ekstrem!
Ini bukan masa depan!
Tantangan kita adalah menciptakan ekonomi yang menyediakan masa depan yang lebih baik bagi anak cucu kita kelak! Mari bekerja bersama untuk mewujudkannya! 🌍🌎🌏 Photo by: "Bread for the World/Christof Krackhardt"
Akagera National Park in Rwanda is defying the odds. Today, the @nytimes featured the remarkable story of @akagerapark, a park whose biodiversity was almost lost by late 2000, but has since been restored. Refugees returning to Rwanda in 1994 turned to Akagera’s natural resources for survival. Lions were hunted to extinction by the late 90’s, and the last rhino was seen in 2007. More than 30,000 cattle filled the park, and tourism had disappeared. In 2010 however, African Parks assumed management of Akagera in partnership with the Rwandan Development Board and worked with local communities to shift the park’s trajectory from one of oblivion to prosperity and hope. Law enforcement was overhauled – snares were removed, arrests made and bushmeat confiscated and a canine anti-poaching dog unit was deployed. In 2016, a helicopter arrived thanks to the Howard G. Buffett Foundation, and a k9 ranger unit was implemented, resulting nearly eradicating poaching altogether. With safety restored, lions were reintroduced to the park in 2015 (the population has since tripled) and in 2017, 18 Eastern black rhinos were delivered back to the park, and to Rwanda, after a 10-year absence. Tourism has flourished with more than 37,000 tourists visiting Akagera last year, half of whom were Rwandan nationals, bringing in a record US$1.6 million making the park 75% self-financing in just seven years. This story, along with two of the park’s beautiful camps, Ruzizi Lodge and Karenge Bush Camp which are run by African Parks, are featured in the @nytimes – highlighting the importance of tourism as a key economic driver that supports our efforts to restore the landscape, so both people and wildlife can thrive.
