'Take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but footprints' is a saying often used to highlight the concept of leaving no trace when we head into the hills and mountains. We all want to admire the pristine beauty of our countryside but this is sometimes marred by what is left behind by some walkers, sometimes through ignorance, sometimes through laziness. I want to use the blog to give some simple advise to help keep our countryside a pleasant place to visit.
The Aspinall Foundation
Who are we?
We are an animal conservation charity dedicated to protecting endangered animals around the world. We work in conjunction with Howletts and Port Lympne Wild Animal Parks in Kent, well known for their successful captive breeding programmes.
Life Changing Challenge events all abide by a 'Leave No Trace' outdoor ethic to promote conservation in the great outdoors.
We have asked a few of our friends to write guest blogs on the subject of 'Leave No Trace' to help educate people and prevent the potential impacts that these issues can have on our environment.
