4. DON’T FEED THE ANIMALS
Under no condition should a National Park visitor EVER feed the wildlife. This type of activity has a severe negative consequence to an animal’s natural behavior and instinct. Some animals, especially monkeys, can die from the bacteria transferred from your hand. It is imperative that the animals live a balanced lifestyle based on their natural environment.
5. BE PREPARED, BE AWARE
Before a trek into the wilderness; please be sure to plan accordingly. Research weather conditions, tide forecasts, terrain difficulty levels, and expected wildlife. The better your preparation, the more you will enjoy your time in nature!
6. KEEP ANIMALS STRESS FREE
There is never a reason to agitate an animal in its habitat. For the best educational sightings, maintain a safe distance and watch quietly. Most creatures don’t desire to be photographed and made famous.
