How to behave

If we decide to take a trip or just a walk in the park, we must keep in mind that the animals that inhabit it are wild and are not accustomed to human presence: we must, therefore, try to be as less prejudicial as possible to them. The most important thing to avoid is getting too close to the animals or even catch them. We need to move slowly, speak softly, wear inconspicuous clothing (avoiding, for example, colors such as red, orange, blue) and turn off the ringer of our phone. All these rules are used to comply with the welfare and tranquility of the animals, but are also very useful to us, because in this way we will have a greater chance to admire them in their natural environment.

How to wear

The clothing suitable for hiking in the Park, as in any natural area, must be practical, in camouflage colors (brown, green, gray) and heavy as necessary depending on the season. As for the shoes, the choice depends on the conditions of use; In fact, if we do a simple walk in the area behind the dunes or on the beach, the comfortable sports shoes are fine; if, instead, we want to do a longer hike in the area of the lame or want to delve in humid environments, boots are the ideal. One piece of advice that applies to all seasons is to bring in your backpack a k-way or a small umbrella to avoid being caught in the rain when away from your car.

What equipment

The basic equipment for a walk in a park consists of a backpack, a bottle of water and a small snack if you plan to walk for a long time. Other items that may be useful are: a pocket notebook, binoculars or a telescope and a camera or a video camera.
