Behaviour to promote

Don’t feed the animals

We must not feed wild animals. We could poison them or make them dependent and unable to find food on their own.

Feeding the animals

We must not feed wild animals. But we can feed birds with the seeds that are suitable for them. This helps them get through cold spells when food is harder to find.

We must stay on the trails, even if we’re careful not to step on plants, we might disturb the wildlife.
