If you want to learn and to know the secrets of nature,you must first respect all its aspects.
These are some important rules to follow in order to meet some of the inhabitants of the park:
- if you want to meet the animals living in the woods, natural parks, gardens in cities and in the countryside, first you need to avoid making unnecessary noise that could disturb the quiet of nature.
- in a natural environment, but also in that one in which we live, plants and flowers must be respected, so avoid picking flowers or damage the trees.
- leaving the waste during a trip is a wrong behavior, because what you leave in the places it stays for a long time and pollute the environment. Bring bags with you and fill them with your garbage and then throw them in the containers.
- do not light fires, a small distraction can cause the destruction of forests and the death of its inhabitants.
