There is a fine line between our existence on this planet and the natural world around us. In harmony, that fine line has a delicate balance we must walk with grace and understanding. We are all a part of nature itself. Traveling sustainably gives us choices to recognize ecological and biological systems that should remain diverse and productive indefinitely. We must be aware of our impact on our environment and the efforts by many to preserve it for generations to come. There is no better way to understand that than by getting out there and getting face to face with it, capture and share those moments and bring back the stories of struggle and survival in our natural world.
