Earth Day is April 22nd and I for one cannot think of a better way to celebrate the beautiful planet we live upon that to get out and enjoy nature through the timeless tradition of camping. camping is a great way for family and friends to enjoy the great outdoors, get exercise and breathe in the cool spring air that nature provides us with. Depending on where you go camping you must never forget to bring one particular item and that is Guard Alaska Bear Spray. If you do not have bear spray and ever find yourself in the unfortunate situation of coming face to face with a frightened bear, well it might just be the last camping trip you ever take. Without Guard Alaska bear spray it might just be the last trip you take anywhere.
Earth Day is also a day to celebrate not just and preserve flora but fauna as well. We humans have done much to drastically reduce the amount of land that many animals called home. Bears in particular used to roam freely over a vast portion of North America until we humans wiped out a fair percentage of them and forced them into smaller and smaller areas to live. Fortunately there are still areas in North America where bears roam freely and many of those areas are beautiful places to go camping, like Yosemite National Park for one. When we go camping in places like Yosemite, or anywhere there is even the slightest possibility of seeing a bear we have to remember to bring along bear spray to protect ourselves but we must also think about these poor bears. You see bear attacks don’t occur because the bears involved are blood-thirsty beats just waiting to prey upon unsuspecting humans, they happen because the bear is concerned for its own safety and does not understand the human’s intentions. Bear spray, like pepper spray, although immensely effective causes no permanent damage to the man or creature being sprayed. The immensely painful burning sensation and swelling of the eyes is enough to stop any attacker, man or beast, but the effects wear off in a relatively short amount of time.
What is so wonderful about Guard Alaska bear spray is that its ingredients are 100% natural, as is almost any brand of pepper spray, and contains absolutely no harmful, ozone-depleting chemicals. So not only does this bear spray keep you and your loved ones safe but it keeps the bear safe and perhaps most importantly on Earth Day is the fact that it keeps Mother Nature safe.
