Year 12 D of E Training Day 1 Unit 2 The Environment Your Team The Qualifying Expedition The Environment ( Page 29 ) It is important that we protect the expedition environment Why?

So we can use it So it is there in years to come So everybody can enjoy it To maintain wildlife To maintain plant life Anyone doing an expedition should put the following into practice

Litter Leave absolutely none, not even a tiny sweet rapper Try not to bring plastic, but if you do, take it home Never bring glass Everything you leave will play a part in destroying the environment Fires Do

not light any type of camp fire This will destroy vegetation and take years to recover There is a risk of setting wild country on fire Only Burn toilet paper As long as there is no risk from doing so

Its probably better to bury the toilet paper Water Add no pollution Go to the toilet no closer than 20m away from water Washing up in streams is not acceptable Vegetation and Paths Dont pull up plants/grass they will take years to grow back and it destroys the environment Replace rocks if you move them

Follow all paths where possible Noise and Final Thought Loud noise is not appropriate Leave the place as you found it

The countryside is peaceful, noise spoils it Take only pictures And enjoy Your Team (Pg 30)

The only way you can complete your Expedition is as part of a team. So Walk at the pace of the slowest person Encourage one another Be tolerant Make decisions together (e.g. navigation) You may make new friends
