Expert Answer:

You can use the following points to frame your argument.


We should maintain our national parks for the benefit of the local population

  • The locals have a right to the natural heritage of their country and should receive the first preference to enjoy it.
  • National parks and wild life reserves when opened to the local public,  give them an opportunity to escape their hectic city lives.
  • It is a great learning experience for growing children.
  • National parks when maintained for the locals are often free or charge a nominal fare.
  • The first and foremost reason behind maintaining a natural park is to preserve nature and not reap monitory benefits out of it.
  • If national parks are opened to tourist there will be an increasing need for maintaining them according to the international standards.
  • This will in turn make it impossible for the locals to afford the fees charged to visit these places.
