Nature in El Salvador

Tonito is an enigma to me. He is the video game fan who wants to be a zoologist? He describes himself as a paradox. I agree. Here is a story about one of his passions:

It doesn’t take too long for anyone walking around the countryside of El Salvador to realize that indeed, this place holds a beauty that is seldom seen. In fact, El Salvador is a nation seldom heard of, but down here in this Central American tiny nation live proud people with a love for their mother country and for Mother Nature. The green, exuberant forests, the warm, sandy beaches, the gorgeous national parks, and the majestic volcanoes of this tiny nation are a great source of its pride and beauty, and they are vastly protected by a small group of people who care for its well-being above many other things.

There is a constant battle, however, to preserve this green beauty that is the Central American forest and the other natural beauties of the land. Unfortunately, some people regard living, arable land in a higher esteem than the beauty that is nature. Indeed, El Salvador is the second most deforested nation in Latin America, after Haiti, and it has a severe problem dealing with species’ decline and dangerous issues such as turtle egg poaching. These problems and the ignorance posted by many people regarding the destruction of nature are what often mark El Salvador as a third world country.

All hope is not lost though; there are many people willing to sacrifice a portion of their own lives to save the lives of many plants and animals. Many scientists working in organizations such as FUNZEL (translating in Spanish to Salvadoran Foundation for Zoology) and hardy volunteers work day and night to preserve the wildlife that exists in this tiny and special nation. National parks like El Imposible (The Impossible) are protected areas secured and cleaned vigorously to ensure that despite human interaction in the environment, the place remains as pure as possible and safe for all the wildlife existing in it.

No matter how long and how hard the battle to preserve nature is, there will always be people here willing to sacrifice much of their lives in exchange for the survival of species. Nature does not depend on mankind; in fact, the truth couldn’t be farther away from that. Nature is a force independent of any human variable; it is composed by an undeniable existence, and we cannot defeat or save nature. We should allow nature to exist just because of its sole right to exist, not because it makes us feel any better or benefits us. Natue is alive and therefore has a right to live. This is true as much in El Salvador as in any other nation on the globe. There should always be a will to help in preserving the current natural life everywhere, so take the valuable example that strong men and women have posed here in El Salvador.
