When Locals And Tourists Come To The Jungle Of Q. Roo On A Tour Or Party, They Don’t Realize That Noise Pollution Has Deadly Consequences On The Animal Population Of The Area.
Environmental researchers warned about the damage that noise pollution is causing in natural areas due to ecotourism and recreation activities (such as electronic music parties) that are being carried out in the jungles of Quintana Roo.
Dr. Yann Hénaut , head of the Biodiversity Conservation department at El Colegio de la Frontera Sur (Ecosur), Chetumal unit, pointed out that the noise generated by parties or events in natural areas directly impacts species such as birds and mammals, who are forced to change places, due to these human activities.
“The fact of generating noise in natural areas causes a serious impact, although we cannot know it, animal species such as birds, monkeys and other mammals feel their territory invaded and migrate to other places, These are things that we do not perceive but that are happening, and it is something very unfortunate, because we affect the environment “, said the specialist.
Electronic music parties in the Tulum jungle have devastating consequences on local wildlife.
He specifically referred to activities such as social and even sporting events within the Quintana Roo jungles, where it is customary to generate excessive noise that completely alters wildlife, generating a completely negative impact.
