Leave no Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics, a nonprofit organization, promotes the Leave No Trace seven principles that give orientation for enjoying our natural world in a sustainable way.

The seven principles are:

1)   Plan ahead and prepare.

2)   Travel and camp on durable surfaces.

3)   Dispose of waste properly.

4)   Leave what you find.

5)   Minimize campfire impacts.

6)   Respect wildlife.

7)   Be considerate of other visitors.

In addition, Terra Peninsular is a partner of Leave No Trace since 2018. We promote these principles, which are a useful and practical guide for anyone to responsibly enjoy outdoor activities and visit the nature reserves that we protect.

Claudia Guzmán, Community Engagement Coordinator, wrote an article called “Socrates and Outdoor Activities” that talks about the first Leave No Trace trainer course in Mexico and it was published in the issue number 13 of the Mediterranews magazine.
