Flashpackers are lucky enough to visit some of the most spectacularly beautiful places on earth. Together we can look after these areas of wildlife and natural beauty by following these tips.
- Keep to the paths: this is to avoid damaging local habitats
- Leave no trace - take all your rubbish with you
- Don’t touch coral or disturb natural habitats
- Don’t use soap in natural streams or lakes
If you’re heading out into the great outdoors, stick to paths to avoid damaging any local habitats and always adopt the ‘leave no trace’ policy - take all rubbish home and leave everything as you found it.
It’s equally important to leave marine habitats undisturbed too, so never touch corals or rock formations. Soap can also damage the environment so never wash in streams or lakes.
