The Wadoo Pledge

We believe in making the world a better place by helping everyone experience the beauty of it.  But this means doing everything we can to help keep it beautiful for generations to come. 

Leave No Trace

There’s nothing we can add to the masterpiece that nature has painted to make it even more magnificent. “Pack it in, Pack it out”.  That means packing out all the trash and garbage you bring with you and not disturbing any of the natural features of the area. Additionally, it helps to prevent pollution and other impacts that can damage delicate ecosystems. When everyone does their part to leave no trace, we can help ensure that our planet remains a beautiful and bountiful place for generations to come.

Leave What you Find

As anyone who has gone on a hike or spent time in nature knows, there is a sense of discovery that comes from finding objects of interest. Whether it’s a pretty rock, an unusual plant or an ancient artifact, these items can spark our imagination and help us to connect with the natural world. However, it’s important to remember that we are not the only ones who benefit from these discoveries. By leaving rocks, plants and artifacts as we find them, we give others the opportunity to have the same sense of wonder and connection. In addition, we help to protect fragile ecosystems and ensure that future generations will be able to enjoy the same experience of discovery.

Respect the Serenity

The digital revolution that had promised to connect us, has in many ways served to isolated us.  As the world grows there is going to be an ever-increasing need for our society to have an opportunity to escape the concreate jungle and connect with the natural world. There is something truly special about spending time in nature. Whether you’re hiking through a forest, swimming in a lake, or simply taking a walk in the park, being in the natural world can help you to feel relaxed and at peace.  It’s difficult for us to find this peace with music blearing, drones flying overhead, or by bringing the normality of our daily lives with you.

Respect Wildlife

 

Respect for wildlife is essential for helping to preserve our planet’s diverse ecosystem. Any animal will become stressed when it feels like it is being encroached upon. This is why it is important to respect wildlife and give animals the space they need to feel secure and to freely access water and food sources.
