Conscious behavior in natural environments

Backpacking minimum impact (Texts produced by the National Protected Areas Program - Ibama)

Planning is central

– Please contact prior to the administration of the area you will visit to take cognizance of existing regulations and restrictions.
– Inform yourself about the local climate conditions and check the weather forecast before any activity in natural environments.
– Traveling in small groups of up to 10 people. Smaller groups harmonize better with nature and cause less impact.
– Traveling in small groups of up to 10 people. Smaller groups harmonize better with nature and cause less impact.
– Make sure you have a way to pack your trash (plastic bags), to bring it back.
– Choose the activities you will perform in your trip as your fitness and experience level.

You are responsible for your safety

– Salvage in natural environments is expensive and complex, and can take days and cause great damage to the environment. Therefore first, you should not risk unnecessarily.
– Calculate the total time spent traveling and leave a roadmap of the trip with someone you trust, with instructions to add the rescue, if necessary.
– Tell the administration of the area what you will visit: your experience, group size, the equipment that you are taking, the roadmap and the expected date of return. This information will facilitate your rescue in case of an accident.
– Learn the basic security techniques such as navigation (how to use a map and a compass) and first aid. Therefore, look for excursions clubs, climbing schools etc.
– Make sure you have the right equipment for each situation. Accidents and assaults on nature are largely caused by improvisations and inappropriate use of equipment. Carry always: flashlight, warm clothing, rain gear and a first-aid kit, food and water, even in activities with only one day or a few hours duration.
– If you have no experience in recreational activities in natural environments, contact excursionists centers, ecotourism companies or tour guide. Inexperienced visitors may cause great impact without noticing and taking unnecessary risks.

Take care of the trails and campsites

– Keep the pre-determined trail - do not use shortcuts that cut paths. The shortcuts promote erosion and the destruction of roots and whole plants.

– Stay on the trail even if it is wet, muddy or slippery. The difficulty of the trails is part of the challenge to experience nature. If you circumvent the damaged part of a trail, the damage will become bigger in the future.

– Camping, avoid fragile areas that took a long time to recover after impact. Camp only in predetermined locations, where they exist. Camp at least 60 meters from any water source.

– Do not dig trenches around tents, choose a better place and use a plastic under the tent.

– Good camping spots are found, not built. Do not cut or boot vegetation, or remove the camp.

Bring your trash back

– If you can get a full package for a natural environment, you can bring it empty in back.

– To scroll through a trail or leave a camping area, make sure that they remain as if no one had been there. Remove all evidence of your passage. Do not leave traces!

– Do not burn or bury the trash. Packaging must not burn completely, and animals can dig up the garbage and spread it. Bring all your garbage back with you.

– Use the sanitary facilities that exist. If there are no sanitary facilities (toilets) in the area, dig a hole with fifteen centimeters deep at least 60 meters from any water source, hiking or campsites, where it is not necessary to remove the vegetation.

Leave everything in its place

– Do not build any kind of structure, such as benches, tables, bridges etc. Do not break or cut tree branches, even if they are dead or fallen, they may be serving as shelter for birds or other animals.

– Resist the temptation to take "souvenirs" home. Leave rocks, artifacts, flowers, shells etc. where you found them so that others can enjoy them also.

– Take only photographs, leave only slight footprints and take home only memories.

Do not make fires

– Campfires kill the soil, unsightly the campsites and represent a major cause of forest fires.

– For cooking, use a camp stove suitable for camping. Modern portable camp stoves are lightweight and easy to use. Cooking with a camp stove is much faster and more practical than to make a fire.

– To illuminate the camp, use a lamp or a flashlight instead of a fire.

– If you really need to make a fire, use locations previously established and only if the area rules permit it.

– Keep small fire using only dead wood found on the ground.

– Make absolutely sure that your fire is completely extinguished before leaving the area.

7 - Respect animals and plants

– Observe the animals from the distance. The proximity can be interpreted as a threat and trigger an attack, even of small animals. In addition, wild animals can transmit serious diseases.

– Do not feed the animals. Animals may end up getting used to human food and go to invade the camps in search of food, damaging tents, backpacks and equipment.

– Do not remove flowers and wild plants. Enjoy your beauty in place without harming nature and giving the same opportunity to other visitors.

8 - Be courteous to other visitors and the local population

– Walk the camp in silence, preserving the tranquility and sense of harmony that nature favors. Let radios and sound instruments at home.

– Leave pets at home. If you bring your pet with you, keep it controlled all the time, including avoiding barking or other noises. The animal feces should be treated the same way as human. They are also under your responsibility. Many areas do not allow pets of entry, check in advance.

– Strong colors such as white, blue, red or yellow should be avoided, can be seen kilometers away and break the harmony of the natural environment. Use clothing and equipment neutral colors to avoid visual pollution in very frequented places.

– Collaborate with the education of other visitors, conveying the principles of minimal impact at every opportunity.

Documentation - International Driver's License

Although not a requirement of all countries, it is recommended to take the driver's International Portfolio before driving a car abroad. Generally, for the car rental companies the National License is enough, that the Brazilian can rent a car. But in the case of an accident, the international version of the document makes it much easier. Especially if you are in a country that speaks a language other than yours.

So before embarking check with the consulate of the country you wish to visit the documents needed to drive. But know that the international portfolio is accepted in the United States and European countries. Taking do not need to take exams. Check with the State Traffic Department of your State, addresses of places that issue International Driver's License. Take with you two photos equal and recent 3x4, a certified copy of ID and National License and a simple copy of proof of residence. In addition, you must fill out a form and pay a fee, the amount of which varies according to the place providing the service.
