Episode 305: Outdoor Ethics



Spending time outside and connecting with nature and wildlife can be a great joy for many people. That privilege of being outdoors comes with a great responsibility: learning and abiding by a proper set of “outdoor ethics.” This episode highlights a variety of ways that recreationists can minimize their effects on wildlife and the environment. A positive outdoor ethic means always remembering you are a guest in the homes of wild animals and always respecting their space.
