Leave No Trace

"Leave No Trace" is a principle that promotes responsible outdoor ethics and encourages individuals to minimise their impact on natural environments while enjoying outdoor activities. Here at WILD we are big believers in the concept and strive to do everything we can to leave wilderness areas, national parks, and other protected natural spaces that we use in a way that ensures their sustainability for future generations.

Here are some key principles of the "Leave No Trace" philosophy:

  1. Plan ahead and prepare: Properly plan our trip, research the area, and ensure we have the necessary equipment and knowledge to minimise our impact.

  2. Travel on durable surfaces: We stick to established trails and paths to avoid damaging vegetation and fragile ecosystems. When stopping for a break we will choose durable surfaces like rock, gravel, or dry grass.

  3. Dispose of waste properly: Pack out all rubbish and litter, including food scraps (eg apple cores and banana skins), and dispose of them in designated places. If there are no bins available, we carry our waste with us until we can properly dispose of it.

  4. Leave what we find: Avoid taking natural objects or artefacts from their original location, such as rocks, flowers, or historical pieces. Leave them for others to enjoy and maintain the natural balance of the environment.

  5. Respect wildlife: Observe wildlife from a distance and do not approach or feed them. Keep our dogs on a lead and under control to avoid disturbing wildlife or their habitats.

  6. Be considerate of other outdoor users: Respect the rights and experiences of other outdoor enthusiasts. Keep noise levels down, yield to others on trails, and avoid crowded areas if possible.


By following these principles and practising "Leave No Trace" principles, we can help protect and preserve natural environments for future generations to enjoy.
