Principle 6: Respect Wildlife
Learn about wildlife through quiet observation. Do not disturb wildlife or plants just for a “better look.” Observe wildlife from a distance so they are not scared or forced to flee. Large groups often cause more damage to the environment and can disturb wildlife so keep your group small. If you have a larger group, divide into smaller groups if possible to minimize your impacts.
Quick movements and loud noises are stressful to animals. Travel quietly and do not pursue, feed or force animals to flee. (One exception is in bear country where it is good to make a little noise so as not to startle the bears.) In hot or cold weather, disturbance can affect an animal’s ability to withstand the rigorous environment. Do not touch, get close to, feed or pick up wild animals. It is stressful to the animal, and it is possible that the animal may harbor rabies or other diseases.
Sick or wounded animals can bite, peck or scratch and send you to the hospital. Young animals removed or touched by well-meaning people may cause the animals parents to abandon them. If you find sick animals or animals in trouble you should notify a game warden.
Considerate campers observe wildlife from afar, give animals a wide berth, store food securely and keep garbage and food scraps away from animals. Remember that you are a visitor to their home.
Allow animals free access to water sources by giving them the buffer space they need to feel secure. Ideally, camps should be located 200 feet or more from existing water sources. This will minimize disturbance to wildlife and ensure that animals have access to their precious drinking water. By avoiding water holes at night, you will be less likely to frighten animals because desert dwellers are usually most active after dark. With limited water in arid lands, desert travelers must strive to reduce their impact on the animals struggling for survival.
Washing and human waste disposal must be done carefully so the environment is not polluted, and animals and aquatic life are not injured. Swimming in lakes or streams is okay in most instances—but in deserts and other very arid areas it’s best to leave scarce water holes undisturbed and unpolluted so animals may drink from them.
Hello! I realize this is kind of off-topic
but I had to ask. Does operating a well-established website like
yours take a massive amount work? I’m completely
new to operating a blog however I do write in my journal
every day. I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my experience and feelings online.
Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips for
brand new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!
This blog was… how do you say it? Relevant!!
Finally I have found something which helped me. Cheers!
I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s
both equally educative and interesting, and let me tell you, you have hit
the nail on the head. The issue is something which too few
folks are speaking intelligently about. I am very
happy that I stumbled across this during my search for something relating to this.

An interesting discussion is worth comment. I think that you should write more on this subject, it may not be a taboo subject but typically people do not talk about these topics.
To the next! Cheers!!
When some one searches for his essential thing, so he/she wishes to be available that in detail, therefore that thing is maintained
