Camping and its Affects on the Environment
Negative effects con't 2
Another negative effect is polluting the water. When people are camping they may decide that its a good idea to dump their items into the lakes, ponds, and rivers although it isnt. This is the fresh water resource that other animals near the camp site require. They depend on those water resources. Without fresh clean water these animals will die.
Negative Effects
There are various negative effects when it comes to camping. Lets start with one of the main parts of the camp- the fire. When you go camping, a campfire is needed to keep you warm. When you make these campfires, they release toxic gases in the air which is harmful. Some toxic gases include carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide- they both pollute the air heavily. Carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide is often released when fossil fuels are burned. If the fire is not placed in a safe spot, it can kill.This brings us to a second negative effect camping has on the environment. Often, when keeping a campfire going, wood is used in the process. This is bad because millions of trees are killed each year for things like firewood.
Negative effects con't
When you are leaving after you may leave behind garbage and waste, having to avoid dumping it into a landfill. This will harm the animals because they may eat the garbage and then choke which can lead to death. Make sure you keep the site clean. Another negative effect is feeding the animals. This may not seem like it can effect anything although once the animals gets used to the taste of human food, they will want more. Soon they will be raiding other campers foods in order to feed themselves. This can have consequences on their bodies digestive systems.

When you're out camping with family and/or friends, its a great way to socialize.
Positive Effects cont'd
This is because you're in the environment with no access to technology and the only thing you have is your friends and family to talk to. You can build a closer relationship with your family and friends by doing so. Socialization is also believed to expand your lifespan and delay memory loss. Camping also improves your mood. Regular campers often say that they are happier the first few days back from their camp trip. This supposedly because the sun outs the levels of melatonin. This chemical makes you depressed, tired and more. Not only that, but camping reduced stress too.
