Leave No Trace Principle #6
RESPECT WILDLIFE

 

  • Observe wildlife from a distance. Do not follow or approach them.
  • Never feed animals. Feeding wildlife damages their health, alters natural behavior, and exposes them to predators and other dangers.
  • Protect wildlife and your food by storing rations and trash securely.
  • Control pets at all times, or leave them at home.
  • Avoid wildlife during sensitive times: mating, nesting, raising young, or winter.

 

 

Additional details by Mister LNT (For Philippine context)

 

  • Do not carve your name/s or your group's name on tree trunk. Gone are the days when you had to scribble "I was here" on trees.
  • Do not pick flowers and/or fruits.
  • Do not pluck off leaves for any purpose.
  • Avoid cutting tree branches along the trail.
  • Do not feed/capture animals.
