3.- PLAN DISCRETION
In nature, lots of sensible species live. Whether when planifying the route or already in it, we must know where protected species can be, and don’t get close; and in general know how to be in silence without bothering the animals that habit each environment.
4.- PLAN THE “NO PRINT”
When designing our route and going forward on it (running, by bike, or however): don’t step on virgin zones, don’t pull out anything, understand that everything is vulnerable in front of our actions… Especially in the most sensible environments or the protected ones (old trees, logs with big cavities, moss, lichen, etc.). They have a huge ecological value and often we don’t give them importance.
5.- PLAN THE “NO INVASION”
Avoid the introduction of any other invasive species from another zone. There are far more than we think. And we, with our slippers, bike wheels or transport methods can move them easily from one place to another. A small cleaning of the zones in contact with the soil or water from one place to another is a really necessary precaution.
