Respect Nature Information

The European Wilderness Society recently introduced a new Initiative called Respect Nature including a brochure informing about the principles and guidelines.

With this initiative, we aim to raise awareness on how to enjoy the outdoors and Wilderness and at the same time minimise our impact on it. Humans can have a strong impact on the nature around them when enjoying the outdoors. Disturbing animals, destroying vegetation, littering and trampling the soils are among the common traces we leave behind.

The principles are:

  1. Know where you go
  2. Stay on trails
  3. Minimise camping impact
  4. Keep nature clean
  5. Make fire responsibly
  6. Show respect
  7. Respect wildlife
  8. Respect others
  9. Respect livestock protection
