Into the wild

The Weekend Australian - Magazine - - Front Page -

Be­fore lightly dis­miss­ing the ef­fect of he­li­copters on wild places I rec­om­mend that peo­ple find out what im­pact they have had on other places, such as Vic­to­ria Falls in Zim­babwe (“Ad­ven­ture cap­i­tal­ists”, Nov 17-18). Peo­ple seek out wilder­ness places for many rea­sons and one can­not un­der­es­ti­mate the value of tourism for any coun­try. How­ever, it might be as well to con­sider how long peo­ple will con­tinue to spend a lot of money and time go­ing to places where the ca­coph­ony of sound oblit­er­ates the very peace and quiet they are seek­ing.
