A few days ago, the topic of “Auntie took pictures in the water with bare feet in Jiuzhaigou” aroused many discussions among netizens. According to media reports, a video titled “Four tourists punching in the water with bare feet in the Jiuzhaigou Scenic Spot in Aba Prefecture” was circulated on the Internet at first, and later attracted the attention of relevant departments. Soon, the official account of Jiuzhaigou Scenic Spot clearly replied: “According to Article 46 of the Regulations on Scenic Spots of Aba Tibetan and Qiang Autonomous Prefecture, they will be subject to administrative punishment according to law. The four parties made a public apology in the form of written apology letters. “
The regulation clearly states: “It is strictly forbidden to destroy scenic resources, hinder the landscape, hinder tourism, destroy public facilities, affect public health, disrupt public order and endanger public safety.” However, many netizens At first, I did not realize the seriousness of the behavior of the tourists involved. After all, “taking pictures in the water” does not seem to pose a threat to the ecological environment or public safety of the scenic area. However, Jiuzhaigou is different from ordinary scenic spots. In order to protect the unique natural scenery of the area, it is necessary to strictly limit the inappropriate behavior of tourists, including the prohibition of barefoot diving.
Previously, the Jiuzhaigou Administration Bureau once gave a very clear explanation for the reasons why tourists could not take pictures in the water: “Jiuzhaigou is mainly a waterscape travertine landscape, and the deposition rate of travertine is less than 1 mm/year. The entry of man-made objects into the water body will cause irreversible damage to the travertine and cannot be repaired naturally; the lake (Haizi) in Jiuzhaigou is of nutrient-poor water quality and the water body is very sensitive. The entry of man-made objects into the water body will make the water body eutrophic and cause algae Mass breeding and swampy water bodies.”
From this point of view, tourists who go into the water to take pictures without the permission of the scenic spot have committed violations and damage to the environment, and should indeed be punished. This is not only to make the tourists involved pay the due price, but also to alert other tourists. After all, there have been cases of tourists destroying the environment and facilities of scenic spots in many places across the country. For example, some people scribbled on the Great Wall, and some people trampled on the Danxia landform, which once caused heated discussion and criticism in public opinion.
However, we must also see the particularity of this matter: in the eyes of many people, taking pictures in the water is not a very serious environmental damage behavior. Moreover, many people believe that this is a “nature” thing with trampling lawns and littering. Although this shows that the quality of tourists needs to be improved, it seems that it has not risen to the level of administrative penalties. However, as mentioned above, the environment of Jiuzhaigou has its own special features, and it needs extra care, otherwise there will be ecological consequences that are difficult to recover in the short term. However, many tourists may not understand this, and do not realize how serious the consequences of their seemingly random behavior will be.
Therefore, in the face of this matter, we can’t stop at condemning the wrong behavior of tourists, but also realize that the scenic spot should actively remind tourists about relevant matters, such as why they can’t shoot in the water, those seemingly ordinary behaviors will How much damage to the scenic environment. Moreover, tour guides should do a good job in the popularization and publicity of relevant knowledge before tourists enter the scenic spot, and give tourists a “vaccination”. Next to some special scenic spots that need special protection, scenic spot managers may also set up warning signs in prominent positions. In this way, even if there are tourists who do not understand the relevant situation and do not hear the advice of the tour guide, they can still obey the rules and have quality in the “last link”.
In fact, judging from the public condemnation caused by this incident, it has become the consensus of the vast majority of people to protect the ecological environment of the scenic spot and not let their uncivilized behavior damage the natural scenery. On the surface, the uncivilized behavior of tourists is a matter of personal quality, but with the development of social media, any uncivilized behavior may be exposed and escalated into a public incident. In this regard, everyone must restrain their own behavior. Do not do evil for small things, and it should be the bottom line of behavior that all tourists adhere to. Managers of other scenic spots may also wish to further consider how to strengthen the popularization of environmental protection knowledge in scenic spots through this matter, so that tourists can not only enjoy the fun of popular science, but also play in a pleasant atmosphere.
