World Wildlife Day
Leave No Trace raise awareness of the importance of respecting animals and wildlife.
In general, animals are sensitive to humans while pursuing or defending mates and territories, birthing, guarding young or nests and when food is scarce. The more you understand about a species, the more considerate you can be of the animals needs and temperament, especially at critical times and in critical places.
Feeding wildlife damages their health, alters natural behaviours, exposes them to predators and other dangers. Their reliance on human food is a detriment to their own well being.
