Walk softly: minimal impact bushwalking

Australia, 1987

Film
A still image from Walk softly: minimal impact bushwalking

The rise in popularity of outdoor recreation has led to a vast increase in the number of bushwalkers visiting national parks and wilderness areas. With this rise in use has come increasing damage to the natural environment. Fortunately, a new bushwalking ethic has developed and the “Minimal Impact Bushwalking” philosophy is now widely adopted by bushwalkers. This program covers the major Minimal Impact Bushwalking techniques.
