Wildlife Viewing Tips
The ultimate wildlife viewing experience is watching animals in their normal behavior. Here are some helpful tips to become a wildlife friendly viewer.
1. Use the right tools - A field guide, a pair of binoculars and a comfy pair of shoes are a good start.
2. Watch at dawn and dusk - This is the time when most wildlife species are active enough to view.
3. Keep your distance - Stay on established trails and maintain a distance that is comfortable for the wildlife.
4. Stay quiet - Move slowly and quietly to increase your chances of viewing wildlife, and to avoid stressing the animals you wish to watch.
5. Do not feed wildlife - There is plenty of food available in the wild. Human food can cause digestive problems, provide improper nutrition, and even kill an animal.
