This has resulted in an increase in the number of people who are participating in outdoor sports. Our collective mark on the environment and its natural process has increased. Litter, water pollution, disturbance of vegetation, wildlife, livestock and other people are all indicators of the requirement for the national outdoor ethic - Leave No Trace, to protect both natural and cultural heritage. Through targeted education, research and training programmes, Leave No Trace Ireland helps to inspire and promote responsible outdoor recreation.

Leave No Trace Ireland, teaches people of all ages how to enjoy the outdoors responsibly, and is the most widely accepted outdoor ethics programme in Ireland. Through relevant and targeted education, research and outreach, Leave No Trace Ireland ensures the long-term health of our natural world.
