Asia offers a diverse tapestry of natural habitats, ranging from lush rainforests to serene waterways. Yet over recent decades, these habitats have come under threat from rapid urbanisation, deforestation, pollution and climate change.
The ripple effect of habitat degradation in Asia is profound. Many species, once abundant, are now on the brink of extinction.
The ecological imbalance not only jeopardises wildlife but also impacts millions of people who rely on these ecosystems for their livelihoods and well-being.
Unchecked and unsustainable tourism practices have further stressed ecosystems, disturbed wildlife and contributed to habitat degradation. Ironically, as habitats and wildlife disappear, the very allure that draws tourists to Asia’s great outdoors is also at risk.
