Travelling is not just passion, is a lifestyle. But also can be fun and lifetime experience.
I love to travel. I want to travel all the world. If i could (i mean with my economical status), i would travel all time. My family and friends wouldn't have seen me again. But unfortunately i can't do this (because i am not rich).
But also i prefer to be with wild animals. So every time i travel (a small or big trip) always going to a park, in a forest, or somewhere away from humans (but also i am going to tourist attractions). I really love to take photos of the biodiversity around me and record the animal behavior.
Yes i have fun in my trips, i have adventure, i see things when other people can't (but only in documentaries). But why not helping the scientific community and projects with my trips;
That's why i am participating in conservation organizations. Because i can see things when the other people don't, because they cover some of my expenses (like food, sleep, activities) and that makes it easier to travel more with less money, and because i know that my observations and my work is useful to biodiversity conservation and the environment.
But that's not enough. Especially when my observations can be helpful also to other projects. So i am uploading to inaturalist (and in other wildlife projects) and on that way i am creating a library of what i have seen and where, sharing my photos with the world, scientists and organizations (which i allow to use the data where they want it)...
