LEAVE NO TRACE
MAKE OUR NATURE TRAIL
SUSTAINABLE

 

Promote sustainable hiking attitude and
trail management through public education activities

WHAT'S UP

The general public in Hong Kong loves visiting country trails,
however, the frequent visits may accelerate soil erosion of nature trails.
The Green Earth launched the
“ECF Make Our Nature Trails Sustainable – Leave No Trace Education Programme”
in Aug 2018. Though public engagement activities,
we promote the sustainable use and management of hiking trails.

    To explore the beauty of nature trails in Hong Kong

  • Public talks and lectures

    To understand the underlying cause of the accelerated deterioration and erosion of hiking trails, the state of hiking trails and the challenge in managing trail use

  • Promote "Love our trail" message

    To foster the care of natural environment, and avoid any behavior that cause negative impact to the trails and countryside environment

  • Repair your own trails

【 #承載力爆煲點算好?】

近排好多人問:
塔門草地點解會禿?
千島湖景觀台前的山坡點解會沙化?
玉桂山點解現「地中海」?
昂坪草原及大金鐘點解無以前咁綠油油?

簡單來說,遊人數量可能已超越了佢哋嘅環境承載力,即係郊遊目的地環境開始受到無法彌補嘅破壞和損害😨

承載力爆煲,自然環境和旅遊質素都會下降,對大家都無好處,透過例如將人潮分流、加設合適設施、教育遊客Leave No Trace以減少影響足印,都可以令承載力無咁快爆煲。 #仲有乜好方法呢奇美子繪本日記 href="https://facebook.com/3654313964663636">#可持續山徑通識漫畫系列
#可持續郊野之集思廣益

2/1/2012 在過背徑上緊雞公嶺的羅天頂一段!山徑都不再是山徑!火舞黃沙!周邊不時有越野電單車上上落落! 沙塵滾滾!勁難行!

太難拉,太多路可以走

政府又扮睇唔到,拉人繩之於法喇!

2020-12,睇住佢片嚟片去,個山就花晒😪

所以電單車出事係唔駛可憐

傷痕累累😢
