A person’s ecological footprint is a measure of their impact on the environment. The average ecological footprint of each human is currently 2.3 hectares of land. This area is bigger than 3.
The most important point being that the natural balance in an ecosystem is maintained. This balance may be disturbed due to the introduction of new species, the sudden death of some species, natural hazards or man-made causes. In this field trip we will explore how human population and development affects the ecological balance.
