All the key holders in this aquarium industry, from a fishermen to an importer to a retailer or even an aquarium keepers knows the importance of nature, it is our lifeline. With out nature, our industry doesn’t exist. All the aquarium hobbyist in the world are estimated less than 1 percent of the global population which is 780 cr (7.8 bn). Land on Earth is about 29 percent and we still have miles and miles of land which is clean and green then can less than 1 percent of the whole population assuming the whole industry is saltwater can destroy the 71 percent of earth and bring a global climate change. WAKE UP look around you, changes are happening and humans are responsible for it. Our industry is ever changing we are now successfully breeding, farming fish and corals so the industry impact compared to world population on the change is negligible.
The beauty of nature is such that as much we destroy, nature will level it’s self and that is a change for us. What ever junk we throw on the 29 percent on the land that would ultimately lead to the other part. Human’s are junk creates every day we destroy nature and that happens when we use our cars, use ac, use paper. How human’s are polluting the nature is an essay in it self, the underlining is every human has his hand dirty for the changes. Human are greedy in nature and for our greed, we would do the unthinkable.
On the other hand our industry faces lot of difficulties when this topic is tabled out, from ban to regulations, what is being cultivated in one part of the world, the part is facing a ban on the trade. In our industry we are the last group of people who would who want these creatures to vanish from the planet. Our industry is doing every thing possible to conserve the environment but for this to work, we need the the whole population of 7.8 billion to act as one.
Human nature is such that blame game is the easiest way out. Just blame the industry, blame the factories, blame the fishermen, blame the government for not doing their part for saving the planet. Hey all these are made and comprises humans we build them for our convince. This is our mess up we have to clean it. We want the 7.8 billion people to be the change and not witness the change. Nature at any time can change the ration of 29:71. We all must act in the best interest and the best part is we just have to do small steps like not throw plastic in the open, switch off the electricity when not in use, use public transport when available. All these small activities are the change that we can bring.
We can in the end only say we live in it, we love it, then why can’t we conserve it.
