Therefore, you should be responsible for keeping things in order when you enter the animal kingdom. You shouldn’t only respect all the wildlife inhabitants but also their habitat, which is home to all these wildlife species. Just remember that you are an outsider who has entered someone else’s property. Therefore, you gotta play safe. Keep the volume and pitch of your phones low and always click the pictures from a distance so that you don’t disturb them. Also, try not to litter the area as it’s the Mother Nature we are talking about.
